Hello everyone...and a very happy Thursday to you all! I hope that your day is off to a good start and that you are connecting to the One, who can truly be everything...for everything you need in this day! What a beautiful day it is, in the Inland Northwest! The sun is shining and the mornings are starting to feel, as if a hint of autumn is coming our way...which I just love!
How many of us can truly say today that we trust God? I remember a time, when I was just coming through several years of counseling, for sexual abuse...and a dysfunctional home life. The thing I was dealing with at the time, was trusting people. So many things had happened throughout my life; where I came to a place that I just could not trust anyone. As I shared what was on my heart with God...I said to Him... "How do I learn to trust people again"...and this is what He laid upon my heart... "Diane...all you need to do is put your complete trust in Me." For once in my life...these moments didn't seem so overwhelming to me; because I thought to myself...if I only need to learn to trust God...then that should be easier.
As I began to place my life in His hands...and lean on Him, for everything that was ahead of me...I began to see how He crowned every moment with His success...not mine, which only made me long to trust Him more.
Today, if you are struggling to trust others...and you feel numb to what is happening around you...may I encourage you to trust in the One, who will never let you down. Yes...my ways may not always be what I expect His ways to be...but in the end, I see how He makes all things right within my life.
One thing I can tell you today...trusting God can seem as if you are walking in the dark...wondering if you may trip over an obstacle and fall...and that can seem scary; but one thing I also know...when we choose to test the waters with God; His light will shine down upon our path and illuminate these uncertain moments that may lie ahead of us...so give Him a chance. I know one thing...you won't regret it...and as you see Him crown each effort you put forth with success; these moments will cause you to trust Him even more...just as I did.
Today, I pray that you will find the strength to step out and truly place your trust in God; that you may experience the fullness...of all He longs to be for you in your life!
Have a great Thursday...and I will hope to see you again this evening! God bless!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
