Trust Beyond Yourself


Do you feel as if you are losing your mind

as your world is closing in on you?

For just one moment you wish you could get out of yourself

because you have been with yourself for way too long.

You are at a crossroad that demands a change.

To face you like you have never faced before,

as there are no distractions to run away to

So you have to LOOK UP

as TRUST has taken on a whole different meaning~

"Trust in HIM at all times, ________ (your name) :

pour out your heart, ______ to HIM, for GOD is our refuge" (Psalm 62:8)

You open your mouth and want to tell HIM exactly you feel

yet you are hesitant

because how do you tell HIM

that you are ANXIOUS.

Oh HE KNOWS~

"Cast all your anxiety on HIM because he cares for you" (I Peter 5:7).

But how do you tell HIM that are AFRAID?

Oh HE KNOWS~

“Peace is what I leave with you; it is MY own peace that I give you.

I do not give it as the world does. Do not be worried and upset; do not be afraid" (John 14:27)

But where is HE when you are pouring out your heart

yet nothing is changing as you still feel the same.

And then you realize

something has really changed

as you are experiencing

TRUST like you have never experienced it before

because you are talking to THE ONE who you are TRUSTING.

“Trust is not a passive state of mind. It is a vigorous act of the soul by which we

choose to lay hold on the promises of GOD and cling to them despite the adversity that at times seeks to overwhelm us” (Jerry Bridges)

Oh how we are stretched in these times

But oh how TRUST IN GOD has taken on a whole new meaning

as we come face to face with ourselves like we have never before~

yet with THE ONE who meets us right where we are.

And then it becomes all clear

that it is all between you & GOD,

so that taking that step of FAITH

takes you deeper into the heart of GOD

so that HE goes deeper into your heart

so that we have no choice but to be~

"constantly rejoicing in hope [because of our confidence in Christ],

steadfast and patient in distress,

devoted to prayer [continually seeking wisdom, guidance, and strength]" (Romans 12:12 AMP)

so that we experience

TRUST like we have never have before

as we meet a part of ourselves

that is oh so much better

because HE is our TRUST.

Who are YOU becoming in this NEW NORMAL?

Oh so much more as you continue to

TRUST in the ONE who is always listening

because HIS LOVE for you is
