An explanation

I got a comment on my blog that I kind of wanted to address. The comment was a question about my last post and how I had thanked God for finding an apartment, even though my husband and I had worked and found it online. I wanted to explain why I am thanking God in all things and why I believe what I do.
I want to let you know that I am a Christian who loves God more than anything. I have a lot of faith in what God does for me. I know I wrote in my post that my husband and I did a lot of work to find an apartment, which is true. However, if God hadn't orchestrated it, I don't believe that we would have had any luck in finding a place. God prepared that apartment for us, led us to the website that helped us find it, and answered all of our prayers to Him. Some people believe that "trusting God to take care of things" means that you just sit back and let Him do ALL the work. It doesn't work that way. We couldn't have sat back and just expected God to come to us in a dream or something with the perfect apartment, put a downpayment on it, and fill out the paperwork, all while we sat on our butts. But God did help us find the right place for us and gives us the resources that we need in order to be able to pay for that place. I hope this is making some sense...it makes sense to me-but I'm looking at it from an inside perspective. I just wanted to let you know that I trust God in all things to HELP us in life, not to do every little thing for us while we sit back and watch-He gives us free will and choice. He is everything that we NEED Him to be and more And He loves me and all of you too!!
Just had to let you know where I come from :)
Love you all!

I definitely agree. I mean, everything we have/are is through God, but God didn't give us life to sit around and twiddle our thumbs! :)
