I don't have the answers, but I always have a lot of questions. So if you are curious about what's rumbling around in my head and heart today, here goes!
I have, for years, struggled with Trust. Then, when I think I have it mastered, I go through the 12 steps (Celebrate Recovery) and see how far I have to go. God is always working to grow me in this area, particularly in the area of trusting others.
So, if my heart cry is to trust God more, how does that translate into trusting other people? Is it a cop out to say I trust God, just not people.... probably!
How do I learn to trust others after having confidentialities broken repeatedly and simply want to trust God alone with my secrets and heart cries?
What does TRUST really look like in my life? Where is that line when I lack trust in God and put more trust in my own abilities. My prayer there is that God would reveal those areas in my life quickly.
Well, that's just what is swimming around today. What I do know is that God if faithful in all areas of my life and the lives of those who TRUST in Him.
So I trust the Lord and at the same time ask Him to help me with my lack of it.
One day I will strive no more, but until then, I count it all joy to be refined through the fire.
What area does God repeatedly refine in you?
A collection of writings from a life based on the truth that about midnight anything can happen.
As an imperfect servant of the Lord, I often feel I am fumbling my way through life, looking upward for guidance and outward to love. So, I write about it, to break up the noise in my head.
