Sometimes life takes a fast, unexpected curve, tossing us back and forth with uncertainty. When life becomes uncertain or threatens to fall apart, you can give up or heed the call to trust God more.
How many times have you been in darkness without a plan to make it through it? Maybe you’ve faced challenges financially, with relationships or in health. In this situation, I was literally in the dark. But I realized that trusting God in the dark is very much like getting ready in the dark. You can’t see Him but you have to believe anyway.
As I fall asleep at night, as soon as I wake up in the morning, and countless times throughout the day, you and your current struggle have been on my mind. And personally, in my own current life trials, I can relate on so many levels, with so many areas of uncertainty. Questions that are hard to answer. The good news is, when life gets tough, there is an answer.
Boldly courageous…that was the phrase God gave me one year. It sounded exciting at the time…like a warrior princess. Adventurous and brave. Little did I know what it would entail. Or, what I would learn.
During the difficult trials, my trust muscle often seems weak. Sometimes, we make situations more complicated than they really are. One morning, I gained clarity on how to simplify trusting God. It’s really not complicated to trust God more.
I’m not a mountain climber, and I don’t play one on TV, but as I looked around me, mountains surrounded me. Have you ever been in the valley, looking up at the enormity of the mountain, yet feeling ill-equipped for the trek? When a mountain obscures our path, trusting God is the first step toward throwing that mountain into the sea.
