This morning I was reading Psalm 37 in the Bible, a portion of which says:
Trust in the Lord and do good. Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.
Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires.
Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you.
There is a word repeated in those verses a few times, did you see it? The word is trust, and it got me thinking today.
Do I trust God? Of course I do! I’m so grateful for His love and the work He is doing in my life. At the same time, though, I like to be in control of stuff. Hopefully I’m not alone in this! It can be hard for me to let go of control, but I’m learning that trusting God means being more open to His leading and direction in my life.
This isn’t easy, but we can be confident that God’s plan is the best plan.
