As a person who strongly likes plans and the security net that goes with a plan, this quote was a hard lesson to learn, especially out of college as I approached the world with no clue as to what kind of job I would have and what kind of future that would be. The future was unknown and that scared the pants off of me, but as I learned not to fret it, but to accept the reality of my situation, things started to fall into place. A job opened up and I was at the right place at the right time, knew the right people who knew I worked hard to serve others well. And the rest took care of itself. Looking back, I can see that all I had to do was be who I am and trust that things would work out somehow.
Sometimes we just need to let go of what’s holding us back (in my case, fear), take a breath, and move forward trusting that God will provide.
