Leap of faith
'When times are good, be happy; but when times are bad, consider: God has made the one as well as the other. Therefore, a man cannot discover anything about his future' (Ecclesiastes 7:14)
Prosperity and adversity both come from God's hands. God has given all events to us. We must then learn to accept and understand that God has chosen these for us out of love and wisdom. They have a special purpose. God has designed life to be full of the unexpected so that we might realize that we do not control our future.
We are not in charge of life. The great satanic lie that subtly comes at us a thousand times a day is that we are gods, we are in charge, we can plan, we can direct, we can control. Because within the freedom of will that God has granted us there appears some truth to that, we easily believe the rest--that we are in ultimate control of everything. But the lesson of the Scripture, driven home again and again, is that that is not true. God is in charge. What He sends us is always designed to benefit. This is the clear teaching of the Scripture, both in the Old and the New Testament alike. Even though adversity may have painful aspects, we are to understand that it comes from a loving God.
After a lot of thinking, talking with my husband and even more than that- praying...I have decided to quit my job. This has been such a hard decision and is such a HUGE leap of faith for me to do this without having something else in place...but I feel like this is what I was supposed to do and I know that God has great things in store for me!
