Trust In The Lord {30 Days of Truth - Day 1}

I found this on another blog.  It didn't mention where it came from first, so if you know please tell me so I can give credit to the creator.

30 Days of Truth - Day  1

Proverbs 3:5-6 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.

Today's topic is something I hate about myself.  This could be a LOT of things.  But I think the most important one is my inability to TRUST in God

Sure I can say I trust him, but still I worry.  Still there is a small piece of me that MUST remain in control.  This is NOT how God wishes me to be.  His wish for me is that I will hand all my worries and troubles over to Him to carry.  His wish is that I will live in his Glory and Love and TRUST in him to make all my worries right. 

I struggle with submitting my life to the Lord.  I lean to my own understanding and fail to see His ways when I should many times.  This is Human nature.  It is not God's nature.  This is why my paths are winding and unsteady, my life unsure at times.

When I do my best for follow God's plans for my life, I find straight paths and bright days filled with lots of enjoyment.  When I do things my way, I find my life mixed up and my days unhappy.  I prefer bright sunny days filled with singing and dancing, lots of LOVE and goodness

Lately, I've been searching HOW to give up my own control of my life and allow God to take control.  I'm looking forward to the day when I can look back and know that I have done this, that I have allowed God to show His Glory through me and through my ways.  I look forward to the day when I can truly say "Yes I trust in the Lord with all my heart".  I know I have just begun my journey but already the rewards are bigger than they seem.

  1. So True... it's easy to think we are trusting God but, when trials arise, we really are able to see if we trust Him or ourselves! I've experienced this a lot with the adoption process. It's been so refining and joyful though!
