Trusting the Lord

"I will put my trust in Him."
Hebrews 2:13

In our shop we display wall hangings like the one above. "Be Still". Another one very much like it says, "Be". Yesterday both signs sold to two different women. In each case they commented to me how difficult it is to just "be" or "be still". As in "Be still and know that I am God." (Psalm 46:10 NIV) It's all a matter of trust, isn't it? Trusting Him with every detail of our lives. Every second of every day. No matter what. "You find no difficulty in trusting the Lord with the management of the universe, and all the outward creation, and can your case be any more complex or difficult than these, that you need to be anxious or troubled about His management of you? Away with such unworthy doubting! Take your stand on the power and trustworthiness of your God, and see how quickly all difficulties will vanish before a steadfast determination to believe. Trust in the dark, trust in the light, trust at night and trust in the morning, and you will find that the faith which may begin by mighty effort, will end sooner or later by becoming the easy and natural habit of the soul." (Hannah Whitehall Smith, The Christian's Secret of a Happy Life)


  1. The one thing God has taught me about my illness is to live for today and that has been one of the greatest things to learn. I thank Him for that.

    1. God is the best teacher. He knows just what we need to learn and how to teach us.


I appreciate your comments and read each one.
