I know many times I’m tempted to worry.
Yes, I’ve lifted my eyes to Heaven and inquired only half-jokingly, ‘what’s up Jesus? I don’t get what’s happening.’
Somehow I don’t think we’re supposed to know and figure it all out otherwise we won’t have time to trust.
Still, when life is a little crazy and things I don’t understand are happening, I like to know the details.
I like to look at the future and know just what will happen and when.
I would like to know just what God is thinking and how the messy maze will turn into a beautiful garden.
I’ll like to see things go my way maybe even once and feel in charge a little.
There are many things I want to tick off my list, yet I find it amazing and curious that God just asks one thing: Trust Me!
Can I really, Jesus? Can I trust you, Lord?
Even before I hear the whispered yes, a million decades of history and experience tell me that God is trustworthy.
So each day and in every moment, I can pray out loud:
Lord, here I am. One hundred percent available. I don’t know what’s ahead, but You do. Whatever it is, I’ll love it because You love me. And You are good.
And I can be sure that in Him I am and I would live my best life. His word assures me in Psalm 34:5:
They looked to Him and were radiant, and their faces were not ashamed.
This promise is for you every day and aren’t you just delighted that God is a hundred, one hundred percent trustworthy?
