While traveling along this journey we call life, I often veer off in the wrong direction; especially during times of trial! My initial reactions usually include hand wringing, imagining all sorts of horrible endings, whining….well you get the picture and it’s not pretty. It’s certainly not a picture of trust.
Trust for me has always been a rocky road. While I “know” that I can put my trust in God’s plan, I somehow bump right over the peace that trusting God brings and land directly into the pit of despair I bring on myself! Fears: real and imagined, stall me right in my tracks.
I wish I could say that I have my path all mapped out toward a life where I’m no longer afraid and that trusting God is how I now navigate each situation that arises, unfortunately I can’t. What I can say however, is how grateful I am that I’m headed in the right direction following the only One who can get me to where I’m truly meant to be!
