Trust in the Lord, and do good;
dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.
Delight yourself in the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your heart. ~ Psalm 37:3-4
While seeking a job I have had to take some roads on my journey that were not straight and forward. I am experiencing this now – a shuffling of sources of income that is not quite comfortable – where I have two jobs I do not expect to do full-time, as I seek a “real” job to commit to.
Many trials come our way in life and many of us seek to know God’s will, asking in prayer, talking over with friends, and spending time in the bible seeking answers and solace because immediate responses are not usually forthcoming; for me, at least. It is an uncomfortable time.
I often wonder why my life hasn’t worked out the way I planned it to. Doing what we’re told to be adults taking control of our lives does not always pan out. We think we’re taking the responsible road, trying everything we are told to do and it still doesn’t work out right. We don’t know why.
What comes to mind for me are these verses about waiting on the Lord and trusting in Him. He knows our needs and will not refuse to provide provisions for us. Trust him.
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices! – Psalm 37:7
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. – Proverbs 3:5-6
These are encouraging words to anyone seeking the path that is right for your life, when you don’t know what that looks like. You may move, quit a friendship with someone or start fresh with a new career path.
Our roads do not look the same; my road may be windy and weave back and forth while another person’s may get right to success in doing what they love doing.
If you are like me and seeking a way to earn income that honor’s God, please trust in the Lord and take the time to sit with Him in prayer. Call out to him and tell him your concerns.
He is listening, he will respond. We don’t know just when but we all must go through trials as Christians. He will give us the strength to find a way for what we truly need.

Yes… trusting in the Lord and having faith is so important. Also, it’s key to remember his timing isn’t always our timing and you got to have the test before you can have the testimony…

Thank you Suzanne. This message is a Godsend for me. I have been experiencing great pain when I walk. I am afraid I may go lame if I don’t find a different job where walking is kept at a minimum. That and I am going quite deaf and being 60 as well makes me near unemployable. I do need prayer and a condusive job and soon. God bless you and thank you for the encouragement. 🙂
Hi Richard, I will keep you in my prayers. I am working a gig job to keep my income going for a food delivery company. I wish I had an answer for you and I’m sorry that you are in great pain. May the Lord come to your aid, in Jesus’ name.
Thank you Suzanne and God bless. 🙂
