How many times have I said "I trust you Lord" only to pick that burden up again and try to do something about it On My Own??? I have encouraged others as well to just Trust the Lord, HE is in Control, and then I step in and completely get in Gods way! I am definitely NOT a good Holy Spirit Jr. :) nor do I want to be!!!

I have been known to spend a day saying these very words at every situation that arises!


I encourage you to try this! See how your burdens become less stressful and your mountains begin to shrink!

Thank you Lord that we CAN TRUST YOU IN ALL THINGS! When we cast our cares upon YOU, You is there waiting!

Today I am joining WFW here

This is one of my favorite verses. I lean on it a lot!
Have a lovely day my friend.


Amen, amen.

I guess that makes us human, Loren... We do trust the Lord --but sometimes we want to take things into our own hands... God just shakes his head --saying "You are doing it again, my child." (I think he understands!)


Sassy Granny ...

Pastor's sermon today was titled: "Who Ya' Gonna Trust?". I found myself scribbling notes as fast as I could capture them, including this scripture in Jeremiah 17:This is what the LORD says:

5 “Cursed is the one who trusts in man,
who draws strength from mere flesh
and whose heart turns away from the LORD.
6 That person will be like a bush in the wastelands;
they will not see prosperity when it comes.
They will dwell in the parched places of the desert,
in a salt land where no one lives.

7 “But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD,
whose confidence is in him.
8 They will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit.”

I have come to believe that I cannot & will not obey God unless I trust Him. It's the non-negotiable starting point growth in my life. The best, albeit not the easist, place of peace.
