“I trust in the Lord; my soul trusts in His word.” (Psalm 130)
Man this whole lent has been a lesson in learning how to trust. I’ve realized that I really do not trust God or His plan for me.
It is so much easier to just have my own plan and to forge ahead, hitting all of the milestones I have set for myself.
And yet time and time again I come up empty handed. Feeling sad and upset that nothing is really working according to my plan, and that I just can’t catch a break.
But when I pause to think about this situation… I realize that I am probably having negative feelings because I am not trusting in His plan, or waiting on His timing.
I know what you’re thinking… EUREKA! She’s figured it out. Except… maybe not.
I know I should trust in Him. But I really really don’t. And typically… I don’t want to because trusting Him means letting go of the control that I for some reason think I have.
I am trying to work on this each day though. Maybe someday when I reach the pearly gates I will finally be able to say those three words.
I Trust You.
