Instead of White Knuckles…
Life has been coasting along like a kiddy coaster – a few bumps, some small hills, but mostly just coasting. Just when we least expected, it dropped us last night. Instinct told us to scream, to cringe in fear, to close our eyes and hold on with white knuckles. Faith told us to lift our hands up in the air, to be joyful, to trust.
There’s a climb ahead of us, but we are once again choosing to trust in God’s faithfulness, provision, and security. There are no surprises or unexpected turns with Christ.
Jeremiah 17: 7,8 “But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”
We look back through the ways He has shined His faithfulness into our lives in the past few years, and know that we can have confidence in Him again. He will direct our paths as we chose to trust Him with all our hearts, and not by our own understanding. (Proverbs 3:5,6)
Oh for grace to trust Him more!
(Note: We are all fine, healthy, safe, and smiling – just another financial hurdle.)
