When we're faced with difficult times everyone always says "Just trust God". Ummmm OK! Thanks...so helpful. But call me crazy...sometimes I need a little more than that! In the particular season Brook and I are in, it's really teaching me what that means. As I think back on my short, amazingly blessed life I find it hard to think of many times where I've really had to TRUST with pure, blind faith. Sure there were those times I thought everything was crashing down around me because The Gap didn't have my size in that certian shirt I HAD to have.
Now I am understanding real trust and real faith.
Do I enjoy it? Ummm not so much. But I wouldn't trade it.
Would I like to know where we are going to end up and when? You bet! But I'd rather it be in His perfect timing.
Do I get scared and worried? You better believe it. Every single day!
But there is joy in the morning. There is the sweetest man I've ever known taking care of me every single day. And we trust in a God who won't leave us and has BIG plans for us.
"Desperate, I throw myself on you; you are my God! Hour by hour, I place my days in your hands." Psalm 31:14-15a
