The Work of Trust

“Trust is not a passive state of mind. It is a vigorous act of the soul by which we choose to lay hold on the promises of God and cling to them despite the adversity that at times seeks to overwhelm us.”

Amen!

We need to remember when we are at our lowest point, God's plan is still in action. We must rely on Him & trust that His will is that...His will.

Happy Saturday, Gregg!

Yvonne - it truly is. Glad to see you. Thought you were gone for good.

Larri - Amen! You are right!

The word trust always reminds me of this verse in the book of Job when Job proclaims:

"For I know that my Redeemer lives, and that at the last he will stand upon the earth; and after my skin has been thus destroyed, then in my flesh I shall see God, whom I shall see on my side, and my eyes shall behold, and not another. My heart faints within me!"

Yvonne - Thanks so much for asking. Yes, I am around. Have drawn a dry spell with the blog. I am fine. Just don't have anything to say at the minute.
