It seems silly.
Why write something which is so very logical?
God created the universe and everything in it.
God sent His Son, Jesus, to pay the price for our sin.
Jesus, God-as-man, loves every single one of us.
Of course He can be trusted!
my heart has to speak those words.
I have to remind myself of the truth.
Because life doesn’t always work the way I expect.
Pain, sin, struggle, tragedy are all part of living in this fallen world.
During those times I must remember that God can be trusted.
Lately, He has asked me to take it a step further.
Lately, our lives have been one answered prayer after another.
One obvious blessing or direction after another.
It’s almost felt “too good to be true”.
And that’s where God has been asking me to stretch, to trust in a new way.
You see, after all these trials, one on top of another, I’ve begun to become cynical.
I’ve caught myself thinking:
“Well…I wonder what is going to go wrong?”
“This is nice, but are we in over our heads?”
And with each thought the Lord speaks.
Can you trust Me?
Yes, Lord! I trust You!
Do you trust Me enough to just live in today?
I want to trust like that.
To only do the task at hand without worrying about the next one.
I want to trust God so deeply that I can enjoy the moment without worrying over the mountains in front of me.
The kind of trust which sees a concern or an issue and quietly takes it before my Lord, lays it at His feet, and
The kind of trust which never fears bad news, because I’m secure in my Lord and Savior.
I’m not there yet.
patiently hopefully learning
all the amazing ways
God can be trusted.
