In God We Trust

For those of us who are military families, uncertainty is just part of life.  We often live a life of “hurry up and wait.”  Uncle Sam could knock on our doors at any time. Military families live with a lot of unknowns, yet it’s important for us not to place our faith in the government, but in Christ alone.


When my husband found out he was going to be deployed back in 2012, we began making preparations.  Then, his orders were rescinded.  Whew! He wasn’t going to be deployed…..or was he?  There was talk that he would go and talk that he would not.  I really dislike the unknown, so I made it a point to be in constant prayer, that whatever he was called to do, I would support him, and I would not stress and worry because ultimately, God was in control.


Needless to say, my husband deployed.  Throughout that time, there many unknowns.  Yet, through prayer, God sustained me during that time.  He provided for my family in so many amazing ways.

Whether you are a military family or not, life is still full of uncertainties.  It is important for us not to put our faith in government, in our financial advisors, or even in our doctors.  Our faith should be placed in Christ.  He is the one with the answers. He is the one who is unchanging.  He is the one who knows our pasts, is with us now in the present, and will remain beside us in the future.


So, Sister, I pray that whatever you are going through, that you will place your faith in Christ.  Trust Him to care for you and provide for you.  He will stand with you on the mountaintops and walk with you through the valleys.  Why? Because He is faithful and true.
