“Lord, Help Us To Keep Trusting”
Proverbs 3:5-6 NLT
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.
This past week, I have had the word “trusting” on my mind and heart frequently. As the days and weeks continue on, I still feel the need to share with you all how God is teaching me more and more how to keep my trust in Him in the midst of the pandemic that feels like a bad dream still. I find myself waking up everyday and just wondering what the next set of news I will hear will be about.
I find myself praying differently. I don’t really know how to describe it, but I’m just asking God for peace and that I will continue to have the strength in Him to trust even though there is so much I cannot understand.
I have read this passage more times in my life than I can count. It’s been a staple for many of us through the years and is a popular passage to quote in various times and circumstances. Lately, I’ve been thinking more about it and how God is asking me to trust Him even more these days as I strive to provide for my family as I keep hearing different news at work and in the community about changes.
He is reminding me to trust completely in Him, even though I don’t understand many things. He continues to provide for us and lead us. It is often easy some days to wake up and immediately feel anxious about many things. It seems I’m hearing daily changes at work about various changes and it’s easy for me to lose sight of hope and that He will always be with me no matter what.
Friends, I don’t have any great revelations about all that you and your friends and family are dealing with. However, I do know that we serve an Almighty God Who has never stopped providing and will never stop leading us, even when the path seems very unknown. He asks us to continue trusting in Him, especially when things seem chaotic.
Will you please join me in striving each day to wake up and put total trust in Him? We need to trust Him now more than ever and not depend on our own understanding. I would like to end with another prayer this week.
Lord, please help us to continue trusting in You, even though we find ourselves continually bombarded with temptations to lose hope. It’s easy for us to become fearful of the continues news of sickness, but may we focus on You and depend on Your understanding, not ours. Help us to trust and know that You will always provide. Give us strength, Lord to trust even when we feel weak. We know You are in control and will always be. Help me to know I am blessed in so many ways as You have provided. Amen!
