Trusting God


Just a quick post because I'm a little down right now and I need something to raise my spirits and to share some things I'm learning.

I came upon an interesting situation, in fact it was a rather odd opportunity but I really didn't see that it could lead anywhere. But the Lord kept bringing to mind the idea of just saying "yes" to Him. Just being willing to give it a try and follow Him in this.
So I said yes and gave it a try, stepping out by faith. The reply came back a little discouraging to my heart. But the Lord seems to answer "keep trusting me?"

As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him. 2 Samuel 22:31

The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence. 2 Samuel 22:3

But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee. Psalm 5:11

And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee. Psalm 9:10

O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. Psalm 34:8


I just keep trusting my Lord as I walk along
I just keep trusting my Lord and He gave a song
Tho the storm clouds darken the sky o’er heavenly trail
I just keep trusting my Lord He will never fail

He’s a faithful Friend Such a faithful Friend
I can count on Him to the very end
Tho the storm clouds darken the sky o’er heav’nly trail
I just keep trusting my Lord He will never fail.

-'I Just Keep Trusting The Lord'
Words and Music by John W. Peterson

The painting is 'Awaiting Her Love' by Morgan Weistling who has lovely old-fashioned style paintings.

It's been a bit of an emotional day as my friend/co-worker is moving away and I'll really miss her Christian fellowship as we care for others. I'm also in dire need of a day off, thankfully Friday is that day off and just in time to rest up for the weekend! I pray that your week has been a good one now that it's coming to a close. May the Lord richly bless you.

May the Lord encourage you and strengthen you. I have faced many disappointing moments in my life. Don't worry. God is faithful. And He will make a way for you, dear one.

I pray your Sunday is blessed with peace.


P.S. The painting is beautiful and looks vintage or antique. Amazing!

Thank you for those words of encouragement. I know God is faithful and He has a greater plan and my best interests in mind. He is a wonderful God and I'm so thankful for the gift of prayer. He wants to hear and answer my prayers - that blows my mind sometimes.
I'm not quite sure but I am so looking forward to being in church tomorrow. Maybe it's just that I'm longing for fellowship and time to worship my Lord.
Hope your Lord's day is blessed as well!

Laurie :)
