Trust ~5/31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes

“When I am afraid, I will put my trust in You. In God, whose word I praise, in God I have put my trust; I shall not be afraid.” Psalm 56:3 (NASB) / Pixabay

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!

    It’s a hard lesson to let things go. We are not in control. I’ve learned to trust him completely. I always wait for the sign in any decision. Large or small. And he always sends me what I need. That’s my mantra. ha And I’m never disappointed! That is his Grace. Lovely post. Just keep saying, I ain’t scared! 😀

    I love this Cindy! I definitely share your feelings on trust. I don’t know why we do this to ourselves when we know without a doubt that we have a God who has everything under control.

    I am enjoying reading your posts every day!
