Trusting...

I am getting excited about my tutoring program for the fall.  I have had quite a few parents interested.  I am trusting that God will provide just the right children that I will need!  Trust is a difficult thing to do.  Through this experience, I have learned about trust more than any other time in my life.  I gave up a very secure job, one that I loved,  to pursue this road.   I truly believe that this will be a blessing to my family and to others as well.   I will be doing what I love: teaching, but with a lot less stress!  Less stress=better wife and mother.   This morning I was reading in Jeremiah, and this passage stuck out to me about trust.  

" Blessed is the man who trust in the LORD, whose trust is the LORD.  He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year or drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit. " 
Jeremiah 17:7-8

Praying through this since October of 2011 was a challenge for me.  It was very hard to give 100% to a job that I did not know if my heart was in anymore.  But, through it all, I knew that I needed to bear fruit where I was, and that is what I tried to do.  I'm not going to lie and say that I was not anxious, but I strived every day to be content and stay planted and do His will there.  There was lots of drought, and times that I just needed answers, but God just continued to tell me to TRUST!  Now, we are at peace with our decision, but still and always needing to trust.......
