Day 9: Don’t let fears cloud faith

leave a comment »

There is a line in the movie Facing the Giants that has stuck to me since I saw it some weeks back.  I love movies that have characters devastated by circumstances, cries out to God in desperation and happy ending.  In watching I discovered and learned things about myself.  I am such a sucker for movies that may be cheesy but helps strengthen my faith and in this journey I have embarked.

sounds like you are letting your fears cloud your faith

I may not get the quote right but the meaning is there.  I am about to start a position with a company and I am very nervous about it.  Not sure if I am good enough and the engineers they have on hand are way smarter than I.  The quote I repeat because God lead me to this position and He has a plan for me.  I can’t let my career insecurities get to my faith.  I have a lot of fears but I will do my best, do God’s work, work for God, and continue living my life with ever increasing faith.

There is always the ‘if I made the right decision to leave a position’ I know and must say, quite good at it.  But I won’t know until things play itself out.  I trust in God and know He is looking out for me for I have been blessed with many things in my life, great family and friends, wonderful dogs that just celebrated their 10th and 9th birthday, good house, finally financial stability through many years of hardship and debt, good car, etc. I can go on and on about all the things God has blessed me such as health, knowledge, and I hope the readers don’t find it as bragging for that is never my intent.  I know the financial situation around the world and is aware of the less fortunate, part of my excitement about God is that He is taking care of me so I can take care of those in need.  I want to donate to causes, I want to do this and that in God’s name and image.

Of course, I can’t achieve what I want if I let my fears of changing jobs get in the way of my faith.  After all, the world is run by money without it I can’t do anything.  No matter what I am doing, as long as it is the right thing and for the right reasons, I trust in God and won’t let the fears of the ‘what-if’ get in the way and in my faith.
