Trust. My Word for The Year.

Trust. That is my word for this year, did it come all wrapped up December 31st in a beautiful little package... nope it came last week. I was walking from the kitchen to the bedroom, and all I kept hearing was  "trust"... I looked down at my wrist and I saw the word trust being written on my inner wrist. Weird right? Of course my mind was seeing this being written, it wasn't actually happening. But I do believe that sometimes God has to shake us up a little to show us to trust, sometimes He asks us to believe, and more times that not, it is not easy. It is hard. I am a competent person, I'm pretty good at getting stuff done, especially when I'm in control. But what about when I am not in control? What about when I have to trust others on my behalf to make decisions that impact me? Take for example our government at the moment... Our Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, as cute as he is, he is doing a job on our economy... I worry about things like mortgage rates skyrocketing, losing the value in our home... I know, totally out of my control, I'm trusting him to do what is right for our country, his decisions affect us... I'm concerned... and yet... Trust is my word. Don't trust people, don't trust your government but Trust Me. Me... your heavenly Father who loves you more than anything... Trust me.

So here I go, shifting under the physical pressures of anxiety, slipping out the side door, Anxiety, you can stay here... I'm headed over there... under that palm tree... trusting that God's Got This... and I'm just along for the ride.

How am I doing with this so far? Well... I had a meltdown this morning on FaceTime with my Mom... but my Mom... for the past 38 almost 39 years, has been a voice of reason in my life, my ballast if you will... she has figuratively talked me off of many ledges... We talked, we prayed, I felt better. I'm not going to say the anxiety is gone, and I'm not going to say Trusting is easy. It is NOT. But it IS what I am going to do. It will be a daily decision, an hourly decision, might even be moment my moment...  and I'm going to need a reminder, so I created one. One that I can see, I'm going to put it as my screensaver, my desktop, and probably print it out 800 times over the course of this year... but I am going to do it...


How about you, how are you with trust, can you Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and not lean on your own understanding? As competent and qualified as you are... can you trust when you are not in control?
