For the past few weeks I have had no idea what the next three months would look like. Well, I knew I was nannying, how that would pan out was a complete mystery. The little girl I’m set to look after only speaks Korean and the family was out of the country until yesterday. How would this work? I tried not to think too hard. I tried to trust simply that God was going to look after me.
But today I needed to seek out how it would work. I told God in exasperation,
You’re going to have to figure this out because I have no idea what I’m doing!!!
A simple, frustrated confession of need. He heard it.
And he had already worked everything out.
He is so faithful even when I have given up. After stepping out of my comfort zone, I discovered one of my friends actually is now living with the family, and she translated for us beyond simple communication. With every question being answered (like, when is nap time?) I was able to see more and more what my life is going to look like. I saw that God had taken care of it all. He knew what he was doing. I could trust him, even with the practical provision of a job. I could trust him even when I didn’t know what I was doing. I can trust him now.
Oh, thank you.
