Trusting is hard to do.
- It is hard to trust that your child will be all right when you leave him/her crying or upset at school in the morning.
- It is hard to trust when you wake up in the middle of the night, wondering about the future.
- It is hard to trust when cimcumstances point to uncertainty and instability.
Psalm 56:3-4 says: “When I am afraid I will trust in you, In God whose word I praise, In God I trust; I will not be afraid.”
We can choose to trust in our great God, to care for our precious children, to grant us sleep, to provide all our needs. He is able to do “…immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine.” (Ephesians 3:20) When we trust in God, the burdens are lifted and fear is replaced with curiosity, because we know God will take care of the outcome. Instead of saying: “Oh no!” we can say: “I wonder, what will your solution be, God?”
And we know that our concerns are cared for by his capable, strong, loving hands.
