Trust

We've been talking about Elijah in church for the past few weeks. Today was on faithfulness and how Elijah trusted God for EVERYTHING. Even when he was out in the wilderness living on bread from ravens. Our pastor gave us an interesting take on faithfulness that I'd not really heard before. He talked about our temptation as humans to begin trusting and relying on God's provisions, rather than trusting in God Himself. 
We begin to start trusting in the things God gives us-such as food and our jobs-rather than simply trusting our whole heart to God-our trust is misplaced. I'm going to have to do some more introspection on this topic... 

Matthew 6:11
Give us today our daily bread.


This was a weird outfit for me to wear to church. I haven't worn pants to church in literally YEARS. I don't know what possessed me to wear pants this morning. Perhaps it was the chill in the air, or the fact that I just really love these pants and wanted to test them out! They are Old Navy and I bought them for four dollars at the thrift store yesterday. They were practically brand new too! They feel stiff, like they're not broken in yet. Now I have some fun pants to wear to work! 




 So, don't laugh-but I tried to do something new with my hair today and it didn't really work out for me. I look a little bit Amish in the following picture. All I need is the beard and you could call me an Amish priest! Haha, oh well. Sometimes it's fun to try something a little different.






I know it's spring, not fall-but I still love to throw leaves!





God Bless and have a glorious Sunday!

Hey I know I"m prone to that...I definitely start misdirecting my trust toward what's tangible to me. I admit to sometimes starting to worry without even thinking bout God...thanks for your encouragement to move my heart to Him.

Love the pussybow top too!

I've been reading through your verses of this post and the last and they are just so right where I am right now and exactly what I needed to read. I never thought about that before either with the whole trust thing but it totally makes sense. Thanks for sharing that Katie.

Of course you look gorgeous as always. You've had so many perfect pants outfits lately. Love the jacket and your hair as well. Have a fab week darling gal! xx
