He went before me

All jobs came back no.I was frustrated
that I didn’t have an answer as to what I was going to do.
Sure I knew of a few babysitting jobs but that wasn’t going to be enough.
Still though I trusted that God had a reason I didn’t get the camp jobs.
Then I met with my advisor and found out that I have to take summer courses.
It hit me.
The reason all jobs came back no was because God went before me preparing space for me to take these courses.

God knew my path, He’s the one who created it. He went before me. Not only for the summer, but for my entire future. He has it laid out. So my prayer is that each day I would trust Him in the now knowing He has my future.

β€œFor I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11)

So last night I prayed. Not only for the next 2.5 years that are going to be insane. But for my husband, my marriage, my children, my career. I prayed He would go before me. That right now He would be preparing my husband for me and aligning our paths to meet someday. I prayed that our marriage would be solid and firm on the foundation of Christ. I prayed that my children would be healthy and that they would be raised to know and love God. I prayed my career would be one of light to a dark world and that I would be secure even in tough times.

God’s going before me. He’s preparing the way. All I must do is trust in His way and not depart from it.
