Learning to Trust

I went to bed with a heartache.  I did.  I just realize I need to be so much more.  I need to feel so much differently.  I need to care so much less about certain things and so much more about certain others.  I have such a long way to go in this God walk. It made my heartache.

When I got up this morning, I had a God moment. He spoke precious words to me. Words I don’t deserve but they are for me all the same. And you know what? They are for you to.

“…In repentance and rest you will be saved, in quietness and trust is your strength…” Isaiah 30:15

He wants to lift you up onto his lap, wrap his big strong arms around you, wipe away your tears of longing and pain, and whisper into your ear, “It’s all right, little child. Just rest your head on my shoulder. I will take care of you. This world is always in a hurry, but I teach my children patience. Learn to trust my perfect timing so you may discover that all the pain found in waiting has a magnificent and awesome purpose.”

“Though he slay me, yet will I wait for him.” Oswald Chambers

Brian did a message series about waiting for him.  It’s called “living in the gap”.  The gap is that place in between where you are waiting and it seems like nothing is happening.  But with God, nothing is wasted.  There’s purpose in the gap. Learn to trust that even in the gap, you are learning and growing.  If you’ve ever lived in the gap, you’ll want to watch this video.

One thought on “Learning to Trust

  1. Awesome word. At times every job has its struggles, whether with the duties, hours, coworkers or management, one must persevere and strive not JUST to receive a paycheck, but to do your best job as you are working for the Lord himself.
