Why is it that the words “Trust Me” are such difficult words to hear from God? In the modern world we live in, we want what we want and we want it now–please and thank you. We want answers so that we can work on fixing the problem, on accomplishing the task, on reaching the goal. And yet, maybe this is why God is asking us to trust HIM.
Trusting Him means that we have to let go.
Trusting Him means that we have to stop trying to make things happen.
Trusting Him takes courage!
We give it to Him and trust that everything will work out for the good. Jeremiah 29:11. Yes, it’s hard to do.
So, where is the line that separates trusting God and doing our own part?
We push ourselves and our children to do their best; to be their best. Everything is about what we can accomplish, obtain and be recognized for. I believe in that, but there is a point to where we have to stop being so hard on ourselves. There is a point where we need to stop putting so much pressure on our children to feel like they have to do certain things to succeed or be accepted.
Trusting Him can bring such peace, hope and assurance.
Trusting Him takes away the pressure of “what if”.
Trusting Him eliminates the woulda-coulda-shouldas!
What if. Woulda-coulda-shoulda. You can’t live like that.
I think “regret” is the worst word ever! I hate it! Most of the time it means…
I’ve messed up…
I made the wrong decision…
I didn’t act fast enough…
But SOMETIMES it means that God is working His plan.
SOMETIMES it means that your situation has happened for a reason.
SOMETIMES it means that you would not be the strong person that you are had it not been for the things that have happened to you.
SOMETIMES you just have to say the words that I have adopted from my son, “it is what it is” and MOVE ON! Move on. Keep going. Go Forward. Philippians 3:14
I have been praying about a certain situation for months. It is a big decision; a life changing decision. I tend to take the responsibility for others and worry about outcomes. I suppose that most women do. From the very beginning I have felt God whispering two words to me:
Trust Me…. Period.
I have no answers. I have no idea the outcome. I have no idea what the reason for this plan may be. BUT, I do have peace. I love THAT word. Peace. I think that it is my new favorite word. Yes, I believe it is.
