Trusting

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, 
Lean not on your own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge HIM 
and He will direct your paths.
Provers 3:5-6

This was probably the scripture I held to the tightest as a teenager. Whenever I was faced with uncertainty, I came back to a place of peace as I once again gave everything back to Him and trusted Him to direct my path.

Trusting God has taken me on quite an adventure.
There have been many surprises along the path, some difficult, many amazing....
Always, I have seen His faithfulness in directing my steps, which has enforced my position of trust when faced with uncertainty.

Today, I am still trusting.

I feel like God is my personal trainer and my faith muscles are being stretched and strengthened. All this training/conditioning pays off as I more readily hand things over to God, ask fewer questions, and stop trying to control those things which are out of my control. It is a freeing place to live.

When I read this post of thought of the song "Trust and obey for there's no other way to be happy in Jesus but to trust and obey"

Simple words - but hard to always live.

I'm glad you're still trusting.

Really, no other way, is there?

That was my favorite verse when I was a teen...there was a song Carrie Mawer wrote based on it that was beautiful too.

I remind myself that HE is trustworthy...we are safe in His love.
