Peace Without Control
After being hopeless and anxious since August, I finally found peace at last night’s Christmas Bible study. I was reminded that God has everything worked out already.
God knew that Jesus needed to be born in Bethlehem in order to fulfill the prophecy. So, He forced Caesar to make everyone register for a census so that Joseph would have to go home (Luke 2:1-7). In the same way, God has my life planned out.
Since August, I have been worried that I would never have the love and care I need. Giovanni had though that I was acting like a lover again and threatened that this was the last time he would warn me.
Giovanni is the only man who has wanted to marry me. With an abusive, primary caregiver, I thought that I would never have the love I need and a family to take care of me without him. I wondered if I should leave Giovanni to find someone who can provide for my needs. I was in turmoil because I did not know what to do.
Now I can be at peace that God will provide because He has everything worked out already even though I have not seen it. He promised to give me prosperity (Jeremiah 29:11).
