Day 15: Unchanging Trust


TRUSTING is hard.

Because you can't see TRUST.

You have to use BLIND FAITH

and FAITH you can't see.

And then you have to add HOPE

which you can't see either.

So how do you TRUST with a BLIND FAITH

that is filled with HOPE when

"All around us we observe a pregnant creation.

The difficult times of pain throughout the world are simply birth pangs.

But it’s not only around us; it’s within us.

The SPIRIT of GOD is arousing us within.

We’re also feeling the birth pangs.

These sterile and barren bodies of ours are yearning for full deliverance"*

Hmm.

It makes you wonder doesn't it

as you crave so much more

as it is a yearning that stirs your inner desires,

that just are not yet your reality

You crave the change.

You crave REAL CHANGE.

But then you are told to TRUST.

So you are back at the beginning again

stuck in a cycle.

And then you finally get it.

TRUSTING isn't so hard after all

once you remove yourself from the equation.

"Trust in and rely confidently on the LORD with all your heart

And do not rely on your own insight or understanding.

In all your ways know and acknowledge and recognize HIM,

And HE will make your paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way]" (Proverbs 3:5-6).

And then you start to SEE HIM

because HE is

THE TRUST

THE FAITH

THE HOPE

that makes TRUSTING & BLIND FAITH & HOPE

worth the waiting.

"That is why waiting does not diminish us, any more than waiting diminishes a pregnant mother. We are enlarged in the waiting. We, of course, don’t see what is enlarging us. But the longer we wait, the larger we become, and the more joyful our expectancy" *(Romans 8:22-25)

And before you know it

JOY fills your heart

because what you have been waiting for

has been there the whole time.

TRUSTING is the sweet spot of FAITH,

as it moves you beyond point A to point B to point C

with a

GOD EXPECTANCY

that fills you with

ABUNDANTLY MORE

which exceeds all your own

EXPECTATIONS,

because when you

"Wait for and confidently expect the LORD;

Be strong and let your heart take courage;

Yes, wait for and confidently expect the LORD" (Psalm 27:14)

PEACE overwhelms you

so that you finally

SEE TRUST

because

TRUST is GOD.

And then you get it ,

you really get it

because you finally

SEE HIM in the midst of the unseen,

because you

TRUST in the one with a new found FAITH that isn't so BLIND after all

because it brings you to a place and space

where you BELIEVE so deeply

because

you no longer TRUST in yourself

and you start to walk where you have never been before

because it is where HE is taking you

because HE SEES

way beyond what you & I can't see.

Oh HE SEES exactly where we are going,

because HE told us from the very beginning that

HE would direct our paths.

And that my friend is

LIVING THE ABUNDANT LIFE~

LIVING with MORE,

despite the LESS.

And all you have to do is

TRUST IN THE

"PROMISE KEEPER"
