Good evening friends. Today was a beautiful day here in the midwest. I went to store with my window down and it felt fabulous. Now 50 degrees is not that warm but compared to -15, that’s 65 degree difference – a heat wave. Last week when we had negative temperatures and crazy wind chills, it was hard to trust we would have this warm a day so soon but here we are. Trust can be a fickle thing if you have it on the wrong thing.
Who or what do we really trust and depend on to carry us through this life? Our job, our money or our friends can be gone in a matter of a single disaster. Or maybe our trust is in ourselves, our education, our talents or our possessions. These also can be gone in an instant. Today’s devotion in Quiet Times with God reminds us how very important all of these things are but that we also must remember that these things are temporary.
God is the only One who doesn’t change. He alone is OUR Rock that can not be moved. JMeyer
We know that being children of God, He will deliver us from our current troubles. This past year has been a huge worry all across this great planet. Then this winter has been extremely difficult all across the US. But God will get us through it, as was evident today.
Trusting God believes that God is always there. He is always working with us, we just have to make sure that is where we place our trust, in Him alone. Not an easy task for us on the surface but if we can get there….we will lose some things…like worry, anxiousness, fear and confusion. There is a profound peace found when somebody else is taking care of things, someone you can fully trust. God we can fully trust.
As you place all your trust in the Lord, remember the peace it brings you. With that peace, remember to show kindness with others who may not have placed their trust with the Lord yet. Maybe your kindness will be a reminder of where true trust should lay. So remember to always be kind.
