Trusting God

This morning trusting God is heavy on my mind. Trusting God is hard. And sometimes it's painful. Of course it is easy to for me to trust God sometimes...when things go the way I want them to. But when it leaves me in a place that is overwhelming and out of my control, am I still willing to say, "God, no matter what, I trust you"?

I know there is no other way to go. I can't justify taking things into my own hands. It wouldn't be biblical. And I know that God is all powerful too, so even if I did think that I was keeping something from happening, if God wanted it to be then there is no stopping Him. And truly, even in the hard moments, I'm glad of that. I am thankful that I don't have to bear all the responsibility of decisions on myself. If I follow God, that is all my answer need be. "I am following God. The rest is up to Him."

It's scary, I'll admit...but it is also scary to be somewhere other than in God's will. I would rather be wherever I can have the peace of knowing that I have placed my life completely in the hands of the Potter who knows every part of me, who created me, who wants what is best for me. He has no ulterior motive. No objective for personal gain. He simply wants to make me more like Him, and to show his glory through my obedience to Him. He is good. And He loves me. I will rest in that, and trust Him.

I love your last paragraph. I wrestle with this so frequently, and when it comes down to it, I know there's no better place for me to be than in the Potter's hands.... I pray that brings peace and comfort to you.
