The Value of Relying on God in all Circumstances

By Ruth Chilcote

This semester I have seen God at work all around me even in the midst of busyness and chaos. I have been going through a long season of growth and focusing on truly trusting God with my whole life. I have always struggled with giving up control and this year God has been showing me how much I really need Him and should depend on Him. This has been a vulnerable process but God has been showing me how to feel His peace and Joy in new and sometimes surprising ways. I have been blown away by the goodness of God and the beautiful people he places in my path.

I’m in my senior field block for Early Childhood Education this semester and I have seen God in each child’s face. There is one boy who has been through unimaginable hardship for a 9 year-old, but his face is radiant and he never ceases to see the good in every situation. I have seen lives being transformed through simple friendships and true acceptance. I have been inspired by countless students and professors who go forward everyday with courage, confidence, and love. God’s spirit is moving through this campus and he is a constant and steadfast father overflowing with love. He has been reminding me to hold onto his promises and to not let fear take over. Fear is a crippling force that consumes the mind, but love brings beauty and a deep joy that can only be felt through God.

If I could choose one thing that God has been showing me, it is how desperately I need Him every minute of every day.

Psalm 27 has been very special to me this semester.

I am still confident in this; I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. (Psalm 27:13-14)

God is a good and loving father.
