    Great post , Janet,
    This is certainly something I have to remember. When you grow up learning to “control” you have more trouble switching to “trust”. I am learning slowly – to wait on Him; to know He knows what will happen and He cares for me.
    Blessings,

      It’s a hard thing to learn, isn’t it? I think slowly is the only way to do it, and sharing the journey with fellow Christians helps a lot. I’m finding it a long process too.

    HI Janet,
    The first time I commented I sent it from my church blog. I have to remember to turn that off. URG
    Sharing is so important. I think the Internet is really helping with that.
    I learn a few nuggets every day.
    Have a wonderful day.

    This is beautiful, Janet. I love the confirmations the Lord slips in here and there through the day when He wants us to focus on something, in this case, “to actively trust Him”. Certainty combined with “gracious uncertainty” makes for an adventurous life.

      He gets His message across, as long as we’re listening! I love that about Him.

      And you’re right about the adventurous life!

    Janet,

    Our Lord wants us to trust His wisdom, love, and power to the uttermost, as the psalmist did….. God has proven His faithfulness….. That’s something we need to work on.

      Margaret, I think we’ll be working on trusting God until we die–especially where He’s already proven Himself. Some of that’s our slow spirits, but some of it’s the depth of trust He can grow in us.

      Let’s keep working at it!
