Trusting can be difficult. Trusting from the bottom of your heart, a little harder. But trusting God is the only thing to do, or should I say, the only thing left to do. So many times, so many days, I stray from God and listening to what he wants me to do. And then, when I’m backed into a corner, or lost, or in trouble of some kind, I remember to listen.
I’ve been scared to the point of panic. I’m unsure of how it is all going to work out. And my health has suffered, my mind sometimes seems mindless, a dark cloud hangs over me keeping out joy and sunshine. This is what it means to not listen to God, to not trust God. Do I really feel like I can handle this life on my own?
And once again I am reminded to trust in God. My grandmother wrote a song for this verse. It was how I memorized it. And it sings itself in my head while I write this and when I think of the verses.
The part that intrigues me is where your body will glow with health and your bones will be strong. All I have to do is remember to trust God. And then listen to God.
Proverbs 3:5-12 Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track. Don’t assume that you know it all. Run to God! Run from evil! Your body will glow with health; your very bones will vibrate with life! Honor God with everything you own; give him the first and the best. Your barns will burst, your wine vats will brim over.
Isaiah 43:1-2 “Don’t be afraid, I’ve redeemed you. I’ve called your name. You’re mine. When you’re in over your head, I’ll be there with you. When you’re in rough waters, you will not go down. When you’re between a rock and a hard place, it won’t be a dead end— Because I am God, your personal God, The Holy of Israel, your Savior.
