Trust Him

Standard

Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, for ever and ever. Amen

Ephesians 3:20-21

The Lord is faithful. Even when I doubt His ability to deliver, He provides and so much more so than I could ever hope for. This is a lesson I have been shown again and again.

I recently applied for the Saint Joseph Worker Program. But I began to doubt whether this was a wise move because I would put off starting my nursing career for a year. Sure, I could get assigned a volunteer placement site within the healthcare field, but none of the already designed positions I qualified for (some required fluency in Spanish) were for nurses. I feared that I would not get the experience I needed to begin a career once my year of service was over. But the Lord is faithful. He provided me with 2 possible sites that are willing to find ways for me to use my nursing skills. But even so, I questioned if not working for a year was a good idea. Would I be able to find a job in a children’s hospital if I spent a year outside of that setting? Would I really be able to develop the skills that I think I need if I’m working in the community? Can I really put off starting to pay back my loans for a year? But I met with one of the sites today. And it looks something amazing could happen if I choose to work with them. And I’d still get to work with kids. There is also a possibility (though I’m not counting my chickens before they hatch) that if all goes well, I could make a career with this organization. That is not something I’d even dared to dream of until now. The Lord saw all of my fears and He met my needs. He knows what is keeping me from trusting Him and is removing that from my path.

How many other areas of my life am I failing to trust Him with? I know that no matter what my plans and expectations are, God will deliver in a way that is so much better than I ever imagined in every area of my life. God is good. I need to stop worrying so much.

  1. Thank you for sharing such a exciting time of your life. I would encourage you to follow your dreams and the promptings you receive. God is faithful, and he will use you for good either this path, or, if you choose another. You’ll never regret following him, even if you doubt it is what you should be doing, God will use it for your good, for the good of others and for His Glory!

    God Bless you and keep you always!

  2. It sounds like an enjoyable program. If you really feel like the Lord is calling you to do this then go for it. Just keep praying, read the bible and continue to visit Him in mass. I always felt that doing the three things I mentioned above always helped me in my relationship with Him.
