I believe that if we are not trusting God with our minor problems, then He is going to make us trust Him, by giving us so much that there is nothing left to do but give it to the Lord.
Before we were going to move, our problems were, ďMoney will be a little tight after buying school supplies.Ē And, ďI really need to clean my apartment.Ē I thought I was stressed, Ha! God was telling me to trust Him and things will be fine, but I didnít listen!
Then to my surprise, my husband, Curtis, found tons of mold in our new place. Curtis got three tickets in two days, we were told we couldnít stay in our present apartment because it was already rented out. We were not going to get our money back from the other landlord, and so on and so on!
Finally it was too much for me, I asked for everyone to pray. I wiped my swollen red eyes, and I gave it to the Lord. It was hard to loosen my grip on my problems, but I did it!
Then I found out that I can get my license back, the people that were going to move into our apartment backed out so we could stay where we are. And the owner of the moldy place brought us a check for the deposit and rent we paid and he even paid Curtis for painting that apartment!
God definitely taught me a lesson. Iím not going to sweat the small stuff. Itís not worth it but also, Godís got my back! I know I will still worry and stress, but at least for now, I realize that I canít take it on myself, only the Lord can! He can do it!
