Day 12: Struggling to Trust

My Beloved is Mine and I am His

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 2:5-6 (NIV)

Trust. It is easier said than done and I don’t know how other people manage their lives to simply just trust, then close their eyes and jump off the cliff.

Trust is such a big word for me. I couldn’t just give it away easily to somebody unless I have known that person for a long time and he or she has proven an exemplary track record with me. I need to see if I can rely on the person in so many different areas before actually coming too close.

An Unfailing Blessing

All of our errors and failures that
we made in the course of the day

Count Your Blessings

“My heart cries out, ‘What a mighty God! What a great and loving Father!’ Counting my blessings, I find that they so far outnumber my trials that it brings me real courage to press on, knowing that, as I do, grace will be given me to meet whatever may yet lie in my pathway.”
Enoch E. Byrum
