I trust You, Lord. Well ... Most of the Time

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
    do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek His will in all you do,
    and He will show you which path to take.” ~ Proverbs 3:5-6, NLT

“Surely God is my salvation;
    I will trust and not be afraid.
The Lord, the Lord Himself, is my strength and my defense;
    He has become my salvation.”
~ Isaiah 12:2, NIV

“The Lord is a shelter for the oppressed,
    a refuge in times of trouble.
Those who know Your name trust in You,
    for You, O Lord, do not abandon those who search for You.” ~ Psalm 9:9-10, NLT

I Trust You, Lord. Really I Do!

Lord, You are the mighty God, Maker of heaven and earth, and yet You know every intricate detail of my life — You know and care about all that concerns me. I trust You, Lord … most of the time.

That is never a good idea. I need to trust You at all times.

I confess that sometimes I struggle with trusting, probably because I place my focus on my circumstances and not on You.

I trust You, Lord

Please forgive me. Set my heart and my thoughts on You. You alone are my hope. It’s one thing to say I trust You Lord — and I really do! — but then my actions say otherwise. My worry says otherwise, as do my fear and anxiety.

The things I want to do I don’t do. The things I don’t want to do, I do! Oh, wretched woman that I am.

I’m a work-in-progress, Lord. Thank You for Your long-suffering with me. Thank You for teaching me who You are. The depth of Your love is beyond my understanding, but on those horrible, terrible, no-good days I do my best to remember that Your love for me has no end and that You are always good.

And that makes all the difference for me.

I trust You, Lord

You are Jehovah-Shalom, the Lord my peace.

You are Jehovah-Jireh, the Lord my provider.

You are Jehovah-Rapha, the Lord my healer.

You are El Roi, the God who sees me and knows all about it.

You have taught me Your name. Thank You, Lord. I know I can run there and be safe, for Your name is a strong tower. Your name is who You are. No matter what I face, You are my refuge.

Lord, Your Love Will Never Fail

Your sufficiency meets my insufficiency and I am made whole.

Surely, Lord, You are my salvation — You, Yourself are my strength and my defense.

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen — let it be so
