Let go and let God!

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight
This verse seems to be the one verse that I catch myself turning to lately. There are so many things that we will never understand, but the Lord knows exactly what he is doing. The hard part for me is to "Let go and let God." As a human, I struggle with things that are out of my control. I want to have control on every little thing, but that is just a little impossible. If I had 100% control of my life, it would be a mess. God knows exactly what he is doing and the hard part for me is to not worry about it.  feel like it is a lot easier said than done.

One of the most common causes of stress and worrying these days is the job market. I have a great job. I am a kindergarten teacher to a bunch of sweet, spunky, rowdy, five and six year olds. I am so blessed to have the job that I have. There is a reason that I have this job. Yes, it would be so nice to stay at home with my baby girl, but the Lord knows what he is doing by allowing me to have this job. I am able to teach these students to be the people that they are meant to become and I am absolutely blessed. The job that I am worrying about is my husband's. He is graduating with a degree in Structural Engineering. He has worked so hard and is getting out of school into a job market that does not support a Civil Engineer with less than 3 years of job experience. I sit here and think... "Well that is just stupid... how are they going to get the 3 years of job experience if they can't get a job???" But to God it isn't stupid. It is part of his well thought out plan for our family. I just need to trust in him with all my heart and not worry about what I think makes sense. I need to remember that He is God and He knows what is best.

So, while I may be a little bit stressed about my husband finding a job, I am extremely grateful that the Lord blessed me with mine. I have an amazing group of students, who are sometimes a handful (aka normal little five year olds), and a fantastic school, with co-workers who are now good friends.

Yes. I am truly blessed, even though I have a hard time seeing it sometimes.
