Welcome to Five Minute Friday at my blog. I’ll explain a bit more on what that means at the end. For now…
Listen. You’d think that wouldn’t be so hard to do. Close mouth, open ears. Yet, I struggle on with it.
I am anxious. I hate it. Not just the regular ‘Oh dear, I have to get up in front of a crowd and do a presentation’ type of anxiety. The kind that makes me feel sick to my stomach and can make food uninteresting. Boo. Big time boo.
Walking around the block today (exercise helps!!) I kept hearing from the Lord. ‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart.’ It kept repeating in my head.
‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart.’ Okay Lord, for sure. Until life seems to unravel a bit.
‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart.’ Sure Lord, but can we compromise and I’ll trust you with this half of my heart? How about a quarter.
‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart.’
It kept coming, over and over. This isn’t a question. This isn’t the Lord saying ‘will you trust me’? This isn’t him begging me. This is a statement. He is saying ‘DO IT’! He knows that it is the best thing for us. He knows that the moment we stop trusting Him, life gets uglier. It gets crazier and it gets WAY more worrying.
I want to live each moment trusting Him. God, help me. Help me listen to you when you say ‘trust me’. In the years ahead, tomorrow, and in the moment that follows this one. I want to trust You for You have proven worthy of my trust, repeatedly.
