Trusting God isn’t natural

Trusting God when it doesn’t make sense

January 3, 2022 Blog Diary Entry

Trusting God is a decision, a choice I have to make every morning before my day begins and every night before I fall asleep.

I have lots of things happening, that have happened, that I’ve had to go through that are great excuses for me not to trust God.

There have been months where it’s been very difficult to make that choice in the morning, there are challenges this morning on the third day of the new year that tell me I should just give up and go back to bed.

But through the difficulties, challenges, desperations, losses of the last 18 years, I’ve learned that trusting God is the only legitimate and helpful answer.

During December 2022 an incredible friend who was younger then me passed away, Yesterday I learned that a newer friend just found out they have terminal incurable cancer. That person is younger than me too.

There are things in my own circumstances that are completely out of my control, I have no idea where I’ll end up before this year is over.

But I woke up choosing to trust God. Because I’ve seen how faithful God is, even when the results I hope for, or I’ve been told to expect, don’t turn out that way I want.
