Embrace Trust


Do you embrace trust?
In whom do you place your trust?
The Lord says, “Trust Me!”

Luke 8:25

Then He said to His disciples, “Why can’t you trust Me?”

Are you facing strife?
Is life full of challenges?
Where do you place trust?

Do you have answers –
Solutions all by yourself?
Independence sucks!

Interdependence
Is what the Lord asks of us.
Put your hand in His!

When you reach to Him,
Count on His hand there for you.
Invest time with God.

Commit to trust Him.
Recount His great faithfulness.
Put away your doubts.

Give God something small.
Then allow yourself to trust
Him with bigger things.

Psalm 91 is a profound reminder that nothing can separate us from the love of God. It’s a strong reminder of God’s loving care and protection. It is a call to trust in God, even in the midst of danger. The Psalmist reminds us of the safest place:

Psalm 91:1

“Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the Shadow of the Almighty.”

Bob and I are facing some challenging situations these days related to his health, our own home improvements, and church property decisions. We are not alone in facing these dilemmas, but opinions of others can often be conflicting. The Bible tells us that we must put our trust in the one who stills the waters. Lay our souls bare before the Lord and listen for His mighty word… Watch for His guidance … Seek His counsel.

Often the road to answers has a fork in it.
Knowing which path to take requires
discernment,
openness,
and
trust.

Who do you trust?

How do you find the voice of reason?

Share your answers with me!

Sometimes you are the light
He provides!

See ya tomorrow (God willing).
Love ya,

    • It’s impossible for me to keep the bug of doubts out, but when they creep in, God’s assurance is better than any bug spray!

    • That’s OK, {{{Ben}}} – God tells me that challenges make us stronger. Do you believe that?

      • That seems like a softball question, Jan 🙂 Who doesn’t believe that challenges make us stronger? I certainly do.

        By the way, please feel free to call me ‘David’ – that’s my first name. ‘ben’ means ‘son of’ in Hebrew.,, it’s just my pen name 🙂

        Yours,
        David

      • OK… thanks, David. It’s always challenging for me to remember that “softball” fact because when I am in the midst of a struggle, I often just want it to go away!

  5. What a great post! Trusting sounds so easy until you depend on it! But being burned by people can easily be forgiven because we are all are human and make mistakes, trusting God is so worth it! Trust comes from a relationship, I have been blessed by so many through the years. We may not always know the roads that God leads us to but we can be assured he will be with us throughout the journey and at the destination. 💛💙🌻
