There are so many places and things in which we place our security. And just what does it mean to be secure anyways? Some definitions say something that provides protection against loss or harm, or the state of feeling safe and protected. The sad thing is there are so many false senses of security out there. And oftentimes, myself included, it is so easy to place our security in something other than God.

For me this week, it was money. The green eyed monster, greed, money. And don't get me wrong, it was an AMAZING opportunity, just not the place to which God has called my heart.

It kind of came down to an ultimatum on the battlefield of my mind. One epic battle of massive proportions. God kind of put me in a place where it was a bit of a test I think. He asked me a very important question. Do you choose to trust me and the calling I have placed on your life? Or do you choose to trust money? Do you place your security in me? Or do you place your security in money?

I do not pretend in the slightest that I was not tempted to choose money, really tempted. Thank you Lord that you have put enough amazingly wise individuals in my life who spoke truth to me, or I am quite certain the green eyed monster could have won. But God would not have that, He had my back.

You see, not for a single moment of my life has my security ever been in money. And yet I was tempted. Not for a single second of my life has money ever provided me with protection or safety, and yet I viewed it as my “security”. As the “secure” choice.

And then I read this…

“Trust God. Plain and simple. Not easy, mind you, but basic and uncomplicated. You don’t always have to hash it all out. Sometimes you can make a single swift decision. As Christ said to a wavering disciple, you just have to make up your splinted mind to “stop doubting and believe” (Johns 20:27) Believe that He loves you and has you covered and takes every one of your hits as if they were aimed at His own skin. Get down to the bottom of what frightens you, and then pitch it to Him like a hot potato. If we can’t count on God, for crying out loud, who can we count on?”

Beth Moore, So Long Insecurity

He is my everything. He is my security. He has never let me down, and He won’t start now. I trust Him.

Thank you to everyone who has prayed for me, mentored me, and listened to me over the past couple of days. God knew exactly what He was doing when He placed you in my life, and it is because of you reminding me of truths that I am able to have a renewed trust in Him. Thank you.


  1. Mmmm-hmmmm, solid truth and a needful reminder sista. Every now and then I'm tempted to keep my eyes on the bottom line rather than Jesus too. Thanks for your wise words that pull my heart strings back to His hand of provision rather than the world.

  2. sometimes choosing what's right for us doesn't necessarily go hand in hand with financial wealth....those are tough choices...really tough.

  3. Love this, "He is my everything. He is my security. He has never let me down, and He won’t start now. I trust Him." Amen! He is faithful!
