Trust in the LORD with all your heart!

trusting god in trying times

Good morning! Today in my quiet time God led me to one of my favorite scriptures and this message for you to reflect on today. When we are going through difficult times, times when we are in the valley. We find it hard to trust in God and believe that He is sovereign over our lives. When life is easy and relaxed, it’s easy to put our hope in Him. But when times get hard and life is rough, we tend to doubt God, many Christians have struggled with this. The truth is God is sovereign and in control whether we feel like it or not. He is always there for us, willing to offer us comfort and peace, if we will only turn to Him and accept it.

I have found this verse a huge help and encouragement in my life any time I am struggling with worry and fear or doubt about God. I remind myself of the truth in this verse. My choice boils down to believing what God says . . . or not. Especially during the hard times, I have to remind myself to trust in God and to find rest and peace in Him and His Word.

Have you ever struggled with doubt and/or fear? Do you question God’s sovereignty when things are rough in your own life?  There is no doubt that we will go through hard times in our life. (The Bible guarantees that we will!) What will we do when those hard times happen? Will we doubt God or will we trust that He is perfect and in control of all things?

The next time you are going through a hard time remember that God is sovereign and loves you so much. He desires for you to trust in Him and find peace in Him. He wants to offer you the strength to make it through those hard times. For me, the best way to find strength and comfort in God is by meditating on verses like this one I shared above, listening to Christian worship music and getting along praying and listening to God. When I do those things, I feel such a peace in my heart that God is in control and I can put all of my trust in Him.

Have a wonderful day as you put your complete trust in God. Love you all.

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
