Trusting isn’t easy.
Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”
Sometimes trusting can be one of the most complicated things to do in life. Depending on your background you may find it a little easier than others but for most, I find there is always some sort of hesitation. Trusting requires not knowing all the answers. At times you may find yourself placing your faith in someone or something that you have no control of the outcome, and no guarentee.
I have lived and came through a difficult life, and trusting has been extremely difficult for me. Not just with people, but with God. Over the years as I have grown a little more, each time that I face another illness, or another trial, God proves that the more I learn to trust in him, the more I can count on him. I have learned that God is really all the guarentee that I have. Afterall, he is the maker and finisher of all things. Including me and my outcome. One of my favorite quotes says this, “Faith is not believing that God can, it is knowing that God will.” Ben Stein.
I love God with all of my heart and soul. Even if today is not written out before me, and nothing makes sense to me, I know that I don’t have be frightened because God has already promised that he’s got this for me.
