Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything have faith that by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be known to GOD. And the peace of GOD, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
Blind Faith : What that means to me
Give it all to GOD; this is one of the hardest instructions to follow. Blindly have faith that GOD will show you where to go in life, as long as you allow him too.

I recently fully embraced this instruction. Finding myself in a tough situation, my family needed to move. Money had been extremely tight for some time. Full financial responsibility of the grandkids was assigned to us and it drained us. We both also experienced job loss and made bad decisions during this painful time. However, when it seemed like we were at rock bottom our faith was stronger than ever. My husband and I knew that GOD had a plan for us and needed to be patient.
I asked GOD By prayer and supplication with thanksgiving to show me HIS will and direction for my life. I was truly at Peace and knew everything was going to work out even though others in my family were anxious.

As I fully embraced the verses above and let go of any of my own anxious thoughts I could feel the truth of the promise above. GOD would provide for my family. It wasn’t long before we found a place we LOVED, we were approved, and then some money came through my mailbox that secured our deposit, allowed us to upgrade to the larger townhouse and do a little shopping to furnish the place.
My blind faith is not blind at all
The LORD is truly providing for my family. We have upgraded from a nine hundred something sq foot ranch with one bathroom for sometimes eight people to two thousand sq feet, three floors and THREE bathrooms!! I would have traded everything for the bathrooms alone!
Faith as strong as mine currently, doesn’t comes easily, although I wish it did. I would give anything for the people I love to be able to live without their worry about things out of their control.
Giving it ALL to GOD is the most peaceful frame of mind I have experienced.It takes constant practice and prayer because we didnt become worriers overnight but it is attainable.
