My vision is finite, I have finite short sigthtedness in the ways of God, but it seems the closer I come to Him the more I like to try to figure it out. Not only does that sound foolish, it is foolish. Oh yeah it can be fun yet exhausting… i know this is not shocking to Him but the reality for me is, He asks me to lay that down every moment of the day and put my trust back in and on Him and gratefully I do this one thing. The Infinite, all encompassing, all consuming God Who created the heavens and the earth by simply speaking, all that is beautiful and filled with order, it into existence must chuckle at my small thinking. So here I am again naked before Him, figuratively speaking according to me, but literally according to Him. He sees me, all of me. Lord, You are Incomprehensible!
The word can be alarming to some.. eggshells are never fun either.
Man fails. Everyday. Whether intentionally or unintentionally, so to put your trust in man is foolish to begin with. One would think, that person has a problem, the one we can’t trust, what’s their problem, they need to straighten up, this pain they are ‘causing’ is too much. But who really has the problem if when ever your apple cart gets flipped upside down every time someone falls short in the trust factor, or when every one of your expectations were not met, anger rages bulldozing over hearts no matter the cost. It is a sad state of affairs. The cost is high.

This problem and nature of sin can not be fixed by you
Eye opener #2
Even your sin cannot be fixed by you.
Eye opener #3
God is the molder of you, He is The Potter, you are the clay. Your best position would be to surrender and let Him mold.
Eye opener #4
He has and offers this desire for you. To Trust Him.
Not when everything is going peachy, but rather when everything is falling apart according to you. Because to Him, broken pieces are being mended and healing is happening. “Trust in Christ Alone” Is being restored right now, and He will drive this message home like a sledge hammer to His Beloveds. Best to surrender to The Truth. Granted, It hurts to be refined because we thought we had it all figured out, but it is happening, the belief that you get to fully and wholly Trust In Him is up to you. The more you grasp this Truth, this peace and receive freedom of Who is doing the work, The One Who is in Control, the more of His Joy and His Peace you’ll have. His refuge and His strength will be your abundant dwelling place.
For God so…
In the beginning God…
Pattern: it’s all about God.
Forever Faithful is my God
O give thanks unto the Lord , for He is good: for His mercy endureth for ever. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy; And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south. They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in. Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them. Then they cried unto the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses. And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation. Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness. Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron; Because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned the counsel of the most High: Therefore he brought down their heart with labour; they fell down, and there was none to help. Then they cried unto the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distresses. He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and brake their bands in sunder. Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! For he hath broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron in sunder. Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted. Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death. Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses. He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing. They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; These see the works of the Lord , and his wonders in the deep. For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof. They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble. They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits’ end. Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses. He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still. Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven. Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! Let them exalt him also in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders. He turneth rivers into a wilderness, and the watersprings into dry ground; A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein. He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into watersprings. And there he maketh the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city for habitation; And sow the fields, and plant vineyards, which may yield fruits of increase. He blesseth them also, so that they are multiplied greatly; and suffereth not their cattle to decrease. Again, they are minished and brought low through oppression, affliction, and sorrow. He poureth contempt upon princes, and causeth them to wander in the wilderness, where there is no way. Yet setteth he the poor on high from affliction, and maketh him families like a flock. The righteous shall see it, and rejoice: and all iniquity shall stop her mouth. Whoso is wise, and will observe these things, even they shall understand the lovingkindness of the Lord .
Psalms 107:1-43 KJV
One thought on “The Trust Factor”
Thank you for your thoughts. I can relate to all of this. As I am learning to fully trust Him, I am also marveling at how we have such a forgiving God who loves us no Matter what. We screw things up in this life with our decisions, our thoughts, even our actions. Apart from Him and His love…. I am nothing!. With His Love I am BELOVED!
Still struggling with my emotions and the grieving process. Thank you for your understanding and kindness towards me. I love you my sister, and I wanted to share with you last Friday I entered into a Christian Recovery Group called Vital Connections that meets on Friday morning at a woman’s house. There are 6 women who get together and pray, read from a book called A Hunger For Healing, and then the floor is open for anyone to share what they are going thru in their life. No judging, no advice given, no gossiping. Only true Christian love. I’m going to continue to go even when I find another job, which hopefully will be soon.
Thank you for who you are in Christ. An awesome Woman of God! May your day be filled with joy.
In His Love,
