The Missing Alarm Clock
By: Rick Boxx

Cindy shared with a group that God had taken away her alarm clock. She explained that she had a tendency to struggle with control issues. As a CEO responsible for hundreds of employees, Cindy usually was in charge.

Three years ago Cindy believed God challenged her to trust Him and to begin by giving up her alarm clock. God wanted her to trust Him instead. The morning I met Cindy, she had to be up by 3:15 to arrive on time. She was nervous that God would let her down, but at 3:14 God used her dog to awaken her!

Proverbs 3:5 teaches, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.”

Do you trust God at work with the small and big things?
