It has been tight here financially the past few months.  The Lord blessed us with an amazing trip to the Holy Land in December, but since January it has been tough.  I know for a fact the two are not related.  And I can tell you He has provided in amazing ways.  Yet I am so much like the Israelites wandering through the wilderness whining, complaining, and doubting.  I struggle to see His blessings in the midst of what I view as a miserable situation.  And yet He continues to bless me!  The other night I was complaining to Him, yet again, about how things were not the way I wanted them to be when I said it.

"God, I'm tired of this!  I'm tired of trusting You!"

I stunned even myself.

Because if I don't trust Him, who do I trust?  Certainly not myself.  I can't change things.  Well. I can.  But would it really be for the better?  Not if I am doing it in my own strength and not according to His plan.

So after my rant was over He loved on me and reminded me that it is when I am so dependent on Him that I am closest to Him. That He has always provided for me.  In the most horrible of circumstances, He took care of me.  He loves me more than I can imagine, even in the middle of my temper tantrum.

So I apologized to Him and asked Him to forgive me.

I know it is going to be tough for awhile, but I will trust Him, and I will grow in Him.  He has promised to never leave me.  He knows every single one of my needs, and desires.  He can do exceedingly abundantly above all I can ask, or even THINK!  He is God!  And he has blessed me tremendously in so many ways.  And He will continue to do so.

And I will continue to trust Him.

Because He Is.
