Do Your Best and Leave the Rest to Him

Sometimes, we have to face tough things in our lives. Sometimes it is difficult to see the light at the end of the tunnel. We have a tendency to think that whatever we are going through is going to be that way forever. But it won’t.

One of the things that I have learned over the last several years is that if we do our best and then leave the rest to the Lord, He will take care of the rest. I have seen this repeatedly in my own life. In the life of my family. Even in trying circumstances, He is there, lifting me up, guiding my life. Even in the midst of this particular trial, He is there.

I lost my job in February. Having that job was where I was supposed to be at the time, I have no doubt. I wasn’t there very long. Just long enough for the people there to help me through the loss of my daughter. Because I know He is guiding my ship, I wondered where my next destination was. I love being home with my family. Doing all of the mom things that I can’t do while I am working. Having time to do some remodeling, too. But, my ship is being steered in another direction.

I got the most amazing job yesterday. It is doing what I know I will love and the best part is that it will be making a difference in the lives of people. What else could I ask for? I am excited about the new opportunities I will have and the new people I will meet. Because I did all I could do and then waited on the Lord, He rewarded us tremendously.

I have no doubt that He is allowing Laney to help bless us as well. She probably had lots to do with this new opportunity. I know she is excited for me, too. I just wish she were here to put up a poster for me like she did the last time I got a job. That would have been the icing on the cake.
