I Trust

Linking with Charlotte at Spiritual Sunday and Laura at Faith Filled Friday

“Faith’s most severe tests come not when we see nothing, but when we see a stunning array of evidence that seems to prove our faith vain.”  Elisabeth Elliot's a tough word..and something I've struggled with for a long time. To trust means letting go....believing I won't be hurt...that everything will be okay. 

I don't know exactly how I've come to trust Him....but I do. 
Even when things look contrary to what I need...or hope....I trust Him. 
Even when things get worse instead of better....I trust Him. 
Even when it looks as if He's disappeared from my world....left me on my own.....I trust Him. 
I trust Him no matter what. I trust Him to bring good from bad. I trust Him to shine Light in darkness....hope in despair....peace  in chaos. 

I remember all the miracles...the things He's already done...the impossibilities He turned around....His love that cut through all the hate and mess that coloured my life. And because of that....I trust Him. 

From the moment my life began...You have been faithful...

Things are so rough sometimes I feel like Job. Trust can be so hard but I strive to do it.

Trust isn't always easy, but sometimes that is all we have left. Very nice post!

I've been so moved as I've visited here and listened to your trailer. Trust is a life changing thing, as you so well know. But the secret is The One in whom you have placed your trust. HE is the same to each of us as His children, and we all need to know that, and while your past is so different than mine, my need is every bit as great as yours. That's the great hope... we are ALL equal and equally redeemed!! I love this Nikki, and I will be back to visit. Your story is the story of hope... just what the world needs.

Thank you for sharing so honestly, and God bless you every day as you continue to walk in His light.

Hello there from Beholding Glory. One of my favorite books is Ruthless Trust, & you've touched on that here. Declaring our trust, just speaking it out, is so powerful!

In tough situations, I've learned to separate my trust in God and trusting others. I trust God, but I can't always trust others. When I don't trust others, I can always trust God.

Oh dear Nikki
This is such a beautiful post. Everything you wrote here resonates deep within my heart. Like you, I do not know when I began trusting Him the way I do now. At the start, it was just an intellectual acceptance that He could be trusted. But, yes, you are right. He has proven Himself faithful and true. And now, I can't help but trust Him, to bring good out of the difficulties, the uncertainties, the fear... even the failings of other people, when they don't live up to their word, and I am left standing in the cold. Still I put my trust in Him.

Thank you for always giving voice to what is in my own heart.

Much love

Hi Nikki,

As hard as it is sometimes, we should be just as confident that things are going to work out when they look crazy as when everything looks good and is going well. When our trust is in God, we could not be more secure! :) :)

Blessings and hugs!
