Are We Really Trusting In God For All Things?

I'd like to think of myself as a firm believer in God.  I'd like to think that I put my trust in him and  that I follow:

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.  Proverbs 3:5-6.  

However as soon as something difficult comes along in my life I end up putting a lot of time and effort into worrying.  These past few years were some of our most difficult in our household.  My husband was laid off more months  than he worked.  Some days I thought we would never make it through the financial stress! 

Then I look back and realize it was also some of the best times for our family!  We grew closer (since we were all home!).  We started our homeschooling adventure - which is one of my favorite things because I get to see my kids now unlike before when I gave them away more half the day.  We had our littlest Jace join our family and he has been an enjoyment for all of us. We found a church where we are happy and growing!

I still don't understand the hardships we face and I'm pretty sure more will come through the years but I'm determined not to give in to a worrying spirit.  I'm purposing to LEAN NOT TO MY OWN UNDERSTANDING and let God direct our paths.  Looking back he has provided all our needs and given us much more than just our needs. 

I encourage you to do the same!
