My word for this year is Trust.
The picture is very intentional because it is not only a cross, but a T as well.
The past few months, I have been thinking of dedicating my life to work on a specific area for the New Year. I wasn't sure why, but a few days before the New Year, the word Trust was laid on my heart.
Fast forward 22 days into the New Year and I am in a situation that I am having to exercise this word the most than I ever have before.
It has never come easy for me to Trust. I have been through a lot throughout my life and have been hurt by a lot of people, so this word just doesn't come naturally.
I recently had to resign from my position as a trainer even though I absolutely LOVED it. That is all I am going to say at this point, but it is truly a very unfortunate situation. Although, I am learning a ton from this experience.
All that to say, I am in a big season of Trust. With currently no form of steady income and being moved out on my own, I have nothing else to rely on.
Fast forward another week, I am in the same boat. Jobless, with a room to pay for rent. Thankfully I have had multiple interviews, but they are all part-time positions with no benefits,
and honestly, that is a big piece to what I am looking for.
I know the Lord is faithful and will continue to be faithful so in reality, I have nothing to worry about. All I can do is what I know to do. God can and WILL take care of the rest and I know for a fact that I can rest in that truth. He is aware of the exact situation I'm in and my needs at the moment, so I can Trust that he will pull me through to the other side.
A verse that comes to mind is Matthew 6:34.
"Do not worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Another one is Proverbs 3:5-6.
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways submit to him and he will make your paths straight."
If you are going through a season where Trust is needed, fear not. Look to the Lord for guidance, put in the work that you need to, and watch what happens.
