Lord, You Are Trust

The Visitation by Jacopo Timtoretto

The Visitation by Jacopo Timtoretto

 “Be strong and courageous.  Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”  Deuteronomy 31:6

Lord, You are Trust.

Forgive me, Lord, when I want to trust but let doubt creep in, or trust because there really is no other choice when the answer to my prayer is not how I envisioned it.  Fill me with hope in You … enough to trust without doubt.

Thank you, Lord, for answered prayer, even though the answer is hard to take.  Thank you for holding me and my loved ones in your everlasting arms.  Thy will be done.

     Sometimes we pray so hard about something, thinking we are leaving it in the Lord’s hands, when what we really want is a particular outcome.  Accepting his answers even when they are not what we expected, or wanted, takes a lot of trust.  It even takes courage to be able to move beyond what we expected to what is given.  He understands when we are disappointed.  He also expects us to bring it and lay it at His feet, trusting Him.

      Are you disappointed at the way something has turned out?  If so, share your disappointment with Him.  Tell Him exactly how it feels and ask Him to help you have the trust, and courage to move forward.  He will.

     You are not alone.  Many others suffer similar disappointments.  If you are able to pray for others who are disappointed, it will help you in dealing with your own.  God Bless.
