My family is going through a really hard time right now. My husband has been unemployed for a year, I’m unable to work and am waiting for a ruling on my disability case and our 21 year old son who lives at home is out of work. We are in Ohio where things are pretty bad and everything just seems hopeless. And then with my health problems and such, I’m worried about the darned H1N1. Everything just seems bleak and hopeless.
So I got to thinking that I just want so much to have a simple, believing faith in God that this will all work out and that we will all be okay. I don’t want to lose my home or go through any of the things that could possibly happen and I just want to put my hand in God’s and trust Him but it is soooo hard! But I’ve decided I’m going to work at it. I just get besieged by fear.
Anybody out there mastered just simply believing in God with childlike faith??? Any tips? Even if you’ve only had glimpses of it? I just really want to turn loose of all of these problems over to God and trust Him. I’m so bad to want to control everything esp. in this situation.
I’ll take Bible verses, saints to pray to, inspirational words or tips of any kind. lol. Even just sharing your own experiences. We (the whole country) could all use some encouragement right now.
