Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
The school I work at chose this year’s theme to be “In God We Trust.” I was glad to see that since this is where God is speaking to me the most over these last few years.
Many people look to others or things on this earth to put their full trust in. The problem with this is, those things will always let you down.
They are temporary.
They are fake at times.
They can be lies.
They are not planted firmly.
They make mistakes.
The only true thing we can count on to trust is our Lord. He will never leave us or forsake us. But you may say, “Why did he allow that to happen?” Sometimes he allows things to happen and not intervene for His perfect plan, not our perfect plan. And sometimes they are uncomfortable, they are hard, and they may be tough to endure. I actually, as I get older, see how God works so fully in my life through the really tough junk. He doesn’t work as mightily when everything is just going “normal”. He grows me through the mud, the guts, the weakness. He makes me stronger when I am clinging to Him in those really hard times.
