Got TRUST?

Psalm 52:8, 9

“But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God’s unfailing love for ever and ever. I will praise you forever for what you have done; in your name I will hope, for your name is good. I will praise you in the presence of your saints.”

Once you have been hurt in a particular area of you life, it is difficult to “trust” in that spot again. But I am reminded over and over—the LORD is always trustworthy. His mercy and love fails us not.

There is not a day that passes that I am not somehow reminded of what He did for me. I have failed Him—-yet He somehow trusts me still. How is that? How could He know—that I could be trusted again?

Even as our children were growing up—they had to learn lessons sometimes over and over. They would even sometimes be untruthful. I have even had a downright lie told directly to my face—yet—I love them still. And in time, I knew I could trust them to be truthful—obedient again. All part of the growing and maturing process. So it is with us.

As I am praying about certain things in my life—the Lord is leading me into new areas of trusting Him. Trusting without knowing or seeing what comes next. What indeed? “Just trust me child”.

Allow me to share an excert from my post on Laced with Grace last week. . . .

“After I arrived home and began opening my mail, my heart skips a beat when on the outside of one envelope I spot these words…
“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart” Proverbs 3:5–on a cute little sticker with 3 red hearts.

Well, I open the envelope and read the sweet words from my dear friend Iris, and tears pool in my eyes. God is good.

I open the second envelope. Darlin’ little envelope with a little “hangy-down-thingy” that says, HUG. Sweet. From Lori. A crafty girl. When I opened the card she had written a sweet note and then, almost as an afterthought, placed a sticky-note at the top with these words …
“Keep on trustin’ “.

After I mopped up my tears…I knew the message for my heart—for this time of my life—for these needs of mine…TRUST ME CHILD. Hard as it is sometimes…especially when I LOVE KNOWING things…I just don’t have all the pieces to the puzzle yet….but I know as He is holding the next one—He has a little shine in His eyes as He is about to lay it down for me to see….and all He requires of me is….TRUST. I do. Do YOU?

Got TRUST?

Ya’ll go read some more “trusting”, thankful hearts at Iris’ place!

    sweet, trusting heart. you are right. sometimes it’s hard to trust again when something in the past has happened that has broken our trust… but the word of God always reminds us… we have to trust in Him… the whole time, again and again.thanks for a good reminder.

  • Erica

    I love the way you put that to words. It is a puzzle and He holds the pieces. It will one day be complete, but not here on this earth. Each time we get another part, though, it is a reminder that we are knit together and will be held together by him!

  • A Stone Gatherer

    Angie, your post just spoke to my heart! This theme today is reminding me that I can trust God! I really have an issue with trust! I love how you stated everything in your post! It blessed my heart!

  • Cheryl

    I need those words today for I am having a horrible time at work. I know that HE has a plan for me and I just need to “trust HIM”. Thanks for an awesome post! Happy TT!

  • Mary

    Excellent post Angie. I like “knowing things” also. I like to know the next step or twelve or twenty. I like to plan ahead. But God says trust Me for the next step. That’s a real stretcher for me. But I know that He is faithful and I know that He will carry me through as I surrender to Him. Blessings!

  • Natalie @ I AM (not)

    I’m glad you are listening to Him!

  • Peggy

    Bless your heart Angie…May the Lord help you to trust! No more tears or hurts! Thank you for leaving 2 comments that uplifted me. You can clearly see I skipped the TRUST topic…and went with GIFT(kinda). Thanks for reading theInternet Chat, too! They are meant for exactly where God intends.I knew I heard music on your Knightly News and found your playerso you must want to lear how to do YouTubes. It’s easier than Project Playlist and I’m a newbie! Go to YouTube or Godtube, choose your song and search, select then over to the right by the part where it says who did it…there is a URL and below an embed code…copy that slect all…be sure you get it all and go to your post and click on html and paste it there.Then go back to the regular place you compose and continue!!! See…easy as pie. Trust me(lol)Hug…of blessings but not “trusting”. Thanks new friend! You are great with words!

  • Toknowhim

    Nice to see your name again… I have not been so good about visiting and leaving comments in the past few months… Thanks for stopping by again today and have a wonderful weekend!!!

  • Tami Boesiger

    I wish I could say I “got trust” all the time, but honestly…well, I must not since God’s knocking me over the head with it every day. But I’m not sad, because I’m working on it and He’s working on it and each day is a little better than the one before. The longer I go in the this journey the longer the track record between God and I which will make it easier.(Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog. You do my heart good, girl.)

  • Marsha

  • Joanne

    Angie,Have I mentioned lately that I think you are just beautiful? Yes, I have trust…right now anyways ;O) Whenever I get in a tight spot I repeat that word over and over in my head.The Lord gave my husband and I a scripture this year. It had never happened before that we would both get a word from the Lord.“Taste and see that the Lord is good. Blessed is the man who put his TRUST in Him.”Oh, praise God, He is so good.love you to pieces friend,Joannep.s. we are finally back from our vacation. I can’t wait to take some time and read your posts on your trip with the gals. I have to go now and ask forgiveness for covetting!

  • Vicki

    love you, Angie…you're such a sweet encourager in my life. When God blesses you, it blesses me too.Hugs & smiles,Vicki

  • Denise

    The Lord taught me many years ago that trust is just a matter of relationship…. the more I know of HIM the more I trust HIM… it is like a new friend, the more we talk and visit and hear that voice the more we know them.. We hear the voice on the other end of the phone and we know them… We learn of their favorite color and favorite food…. We know the names of their children and their husbands….. We learn of them and we learn to trust them more and more….. so it is with the Father….. so long ago I began to ask HIM about HIS favorite color and HIS favorite food….. HIS favorite flower or animal creation…. I wanted to KNOW HIM so that I could trust HIM more… I am still learning of HIM….It is relationship….. Not law….
