Holding To My Theology

Titus 1:10-16

I have a problem with worry. And lack of faith. And other attitudes like that. And these are highlighted in my career. At this point, I am self-employed. As soon as God led me out of offices and on my own years ago, he started providing the work I needed. And he kept it steadily coming–until recently.

The economy hit my career field hard. I panicked as I finished two major long-term contracts, and suddenly God did not immediately provide the next job.

I believe God provides and he opens doors. I’ve seen it time and time again in my career. But it’s hard for me to hold on to that belief when the monthly bills stare my also-self-employed wife and me in the face, and we’re not sure where the money will come from.

For me, faith that God will provide is where the rubber meets the road. When I start to panic, my actions deny my belief. Again and again, I have to run to the Father like the dad in Mark 9:24b, crying, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”
