Good evening everyone…welcome to the Heart to Heart Blog! I hope you’re enjoying yourself tonight! As for me…I quit my work a little earlier today, so I could enjoy a relaxing fire in the fireplace. What a great way to end the day; then to stretch out on the couch and relax to the crackling sound of a fire!
As I began my day this morning, I went into the office to spend some time alone with God. You know…we all have a specific thing in our lives that we are working on and mine seems to be “trust;” so I did a little Bible study with God, on the subject of “trust” and then I posted some of the Bible verses and thoughts on Twitter; that God shared with my own heart this morning.
Throughout my life, I have had a very hard time with the word “trust” because I thought that I was supposed to be able to trust my grandfather…that is, until he sexually abused me. Then from there…trusting people became even harder…as I laid my heart on the line…only to get it stumped into the ground.
Last night, as I was about to go to sleep, I laid back…closed my eyes and just asked Jesus to hold me in His loving arms. One thing about trusting Jesus; is that He never fails us, even though it may take His timing, to respond to our needs.
You know…I don’t know why we work so hard to trust others, when Jesus is the only One we need to trust. Is it because we are looking for man’s approval? If so, then we need to stop and remember that there is One, whose approval and love we already have.
One of the Bible verses I posted on Twitter this morning was from Psalm 118:8, which reads… “It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.” You know…man's opinions can never compare to God's ways. We need to remember to take refuge in the One, who will not say what He thinks but will do what needs to be done! I don’t know about you; but I am so glad that I don’t have to prove myself to God and that He accepts me…just for who I am. I have come to see that trusting God alone makes my life less complicated.
After a great morning with God, I had a few things to do around the house and then this afternoon, I worked on another audio weekly word of encouragement, which you can listen to, at Inspiration for the Heart. It’s all up and running; so feel free to check it out anytime you’d like, at this link. It’s a little over 4 minutes long; so bring a cup of something hot…sit back and relax and be encouraged. I pray that it will truly inspire you, as you walk thru the remainder of your week!
Well…it’s been a long and busy day…and I still have some work to do this evening; so I will let you go for now. I pray that you will have a great night of rest and most of all…I pray that you will truly feel the peaceful and loving presence of God…surrounding you, throughout your night!
Take care and I hope that you will come back tomorrow night, as I share my day, along with the goodness of a great…loving and powerful God…heart to heart!
Blessings so much on your night!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
