Trusting God doesn’t come natural. If trusting Him was easy, I could only assume more people would be doing it. I know, during times of stress, that it is our God who I can trust, although my first reaction is to fix it.
Although we can trust Him, making the decision to do so does not mean we no longer have a part. We are to continue living out the purpose he has for us.
Memory triggered. This brings back a nice memory I had with my Grandma. She and my Grandpa were moving to Minnesota and I went to see them one last time before they left. The last thing she told me that day was “well… just keep on keepin on“. We hugged and that was our goodbye.
And I believe that’s what we as Christians are to do, especially through the storm, just keep on keepin on. And trust that God will handle the things that we come to feel unsure about. I have no idea how God brings everything together for the better – all I know is he does. I’ve seen this happen over and over. Months later I find myself replaying the events in an attempt to answering the question, “how did I get through that”. And as I try putting all the pieces together I get to a point where I just have to sigh and say, “wow God, you are in control“.
I’d like to close this post with Romans 8:28: And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
