Sometimes, when we’re experiencing disappointment and uncertainty, it can be hard to trust that God is truly leading us, or that He’s leading us toward something good.

During those times, God- our Good Shepherd, Jehovah Ra’ah in the Hebrew - invites us to trust His heart and His character. This was the position in which Wholly Loved’s Kimi Miller found herself, when she sensed God calling her to step out of a thriving ministry position. And at first, that transition was super painful, but through it, God reminded her of His heart for her.
