Ever have days where your mind is just cluttered... well today is one of those for me. I am at my office and I am stopping everything to blog, put things in perspective and give my God everything, all I have. In my devotional this morning, I myself, am pondering on the trust Abraham had in his ultimate sacrifice of his son to God.

Genesis 22

"When they reached the place God had told him about, Abraham built an altar there and arranged the wood on it. He bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood. Then he reached out his hand and took the knife to slay his son. But the angel of the LORD called out to him from heaven, "Abraham! Abraham!" "Here I am," he replied.
"Do not lay a hand on the boy," he said. "Do not do anything to him. Now I know that you fear God, because you have not withheld from me your son, your only son."

Wow, I am sure in my lifetime that I will never have to make a choice to sacrifice my child, but I do have to make a choice to trust only in my God. My mother always tells me "Fear is the opposite of Trust". Think about that one.

I continually have to surrender everything I have to God. Put God first, then my family and along comes my work. Today, I do give God all. God has a plan for me, a plan for the needs of my family, and a plan for how I can assist my clients. TRUST-Just do it!
