The love of God is so complete, that nothing is ever left out. When we fall into His arms, He takes care of us completely. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. (Mat 6:33) Our job, our housing, our family, our future–all are safe in His hands.

I sat on the rocks and watched the waves and listened to harbor seals bark to each other for a long time. I talked to God and told Him how sad I was and asked Him to take care of the situation for me. It was a beautiful setting and easy to see the hand of God all over the place so I did find peace.
As I walked back to my car along a sandy path worn by thousands of people, I suddenly noticed a shoe print that got my attention. Rather than the typical ridged tennis shoe footprint, this one had a clearly defined heart right in the middle of the shoe, right in the middle of the path. It was such a clear print that who ever owned the shoe must have been only a few minutes ahead of me on the path. I started looking for more prints and began following this trail of hearts.
Then God spoke very clearly to me – I have gone before you and made a way through My love. It was such a powerful message that I choked up. I know He will work all things together for my good, because He told me so. How amazing of God to speak to me in a way that perfectly heals my heart. He is so good.
