How could I?

I like to think that I have a strong faith in God. Yet I have recently had occasion to doubt.

DOUBT

transitive verb

  1. archaic a: fear b: suspect
  2. to call into question the truth of : to be uncertain or in doubt about
  3. a: to lack confidence in-Distrust b: to consider unlikely.

I had been thinking it unlikely that I would be able to accept a job offer due to having prior commitments, I had worried that I would have to tell customers that I would not be able to provide service due to traveling. I wasn’t sure I would have time to complete commitments after a scheduled orientation meeting today.

I was tossing last night doing my best to let Him have my cares and to forgive my faithlessness. All of my prayers were answered. I felt a warm sense of ease. I knew it would all work out. I could not comprehend how, based on the information I had at the time, I just knew.

  1. It didn’t snow while I was away no need to let customers down.
  2. My offer to work for the biggest online retailer as a seasonal delivery station associate came after Thanksgiving
  3. The shifts I will work will allow me to continue to work during daylight hours.
  4. the orientation lasted 2 1/2 hours instead of the 4 I had expected. Allowing me to complete jobs I had committed to, and better yet, the last job was much easier to get done than I had expected.

I had to stop and Thank and praise Him and was in tears as I knew I had doubted that it was all going to go better than I could have dreamed. It always does

  1. I think we or I am given opportunities such as these that my faith is strengthened that I will, and others too, will see even greater miracles and that those around me will witness and be curious enough to inquire or start to have greater faith

  2. Doubt is a tool of the enemy in his effort to turn us away from God and lure us into his lair. And we all fall prey to his trickery from time to time. But knowing that helps us refocus on the Lord and know the truth! 🙂 ❤

  3. A momentary lapse…we all have them. Happy you were able to meet all your deadlines. And happy to know your faith is restored!! It is hard at times to stay in that absolute trust…I know!
