"In God we trust."
Its written on our money. Its written on buildings. You see and hear those words countless times throughout your life.
Yet...is it true?? Do we trust God??
I'll just go out on a limb here and say, I don't think it is true. We (as a nation) don't trust God. In fact, we are constantly questioning God. We question His motives, His plans, His power and even His actuality.
We love to praise Him when things go our way or when something good happens. "He knew what he was doing when He..." Fill in the blank. But when we're having a bad day or life gets messy, its "Why God? Why did he have to die?" or "Why did I lose my job." or "Why me?" You've said these things before. Heck, I'll admit, I've said these things before.
But...wait...I thought we trusted God.
Shouldn't we trust God regardless of the situation? Shouldn't we trust that His motives, plans, power and existence are true and right?
Trust is a tricky thing. Its one of those emotion you have to blindly believe. Most people have a hard time trusting if they can't see or feel something.
I am one of those people that has a hard time trusting if I can't see or feel it. I want to change this about myself. I want to blindly trust God and His motives, plans, power and existence. Don't you?
Trusting in God IS something you can feel. You can feel it in your heart, mind and soul. We just have to be better about trusting OURSELVES. Trusting that feeling God places in our heart, minds and souls.
My goal: "In God I trust." Completely. Without question. How about you?
