“Lord, I already don’t have much! I’m stripped to my last bit of cash. No matter how many times I pay off my credit card more money shows back up. I don’t have my own place to live. AND you’ve called me to this promised land that has yet to come to fruition. Now, you want me to give more of my money and time??” I’ve had these very thoughts running through my mind as I journey in my uncomfortable place. Every time I notice my temper rising, I must digress and know that God is in the midst of it all. You may be in the same or similar circumstance that I am facing. I want to share a word of encouragement with you today to help keep your eyes focused on Jesus and trust in Him.

I am in Guatemala on a missions trip with Hearts in Action at the moment. I am sitting on the back patio reflecting on my journey thus far. As I prayed and fasted today, I heard a lot about trusting God even if what I am hoping for hasn’t been given to you yet. I also sensed in my spirit the word “obedience”.

Often times, when God places us in uncomfortable places, we want to jump out of the process. It feels like you are slowly easing your entire body into a pool of ice cold water. You have moments where you want to release your frustrations on others. You want to hide in your own quiet corner. You want to run away from the process. However, in spite of the discomfort, one thing I’ve learned is that prayer is the answer to all of the problems we face.
