Last week, I spent the bulk of my time preparing for and being part of a conference with our church family and others from our region. I was a little hesitant, but I wrote to my web design clients that I would be out for the week and took a break from writing my blog for the majority of the week. I wondered if my clients would be upset that they didn’t have full access to me. I also wondered if the people who regularly read and interact with me on my blog would fly away to a new spot. That’s exactly what the enemy tried to get me to believe. It’s funny how we are tempted to believe that the things God provides or asks us to do are the real focus and we couldn’t possibly set them aside. I’m not going to lie, I was a little bit panicked, but I did it.
When I woke up Monday morning, I had a fax from a client who had had a contract for a couple months but never signed. It was now signed and ready to go! When I logged into my blog, I was very surprised that the numbers of pages viewed and visitors were virtually the same. Now, I don’t go by numbers (been released from that curse), but it just showed me again that I can trust His leading always. When I place things in His hands, there is an assurance of provision.
6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, 7 casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.
