God is love. And He is good-all the time!

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.
—Proverbs 3:5–6

Simply put Trust God… The rest falls into place. Sounds easy huh? More times than I can count I’ve fallen into taking back this trust. What do I mean? If I’m trusting God then that means to me stop worrying and fretting. Trust He’s guiding my paths. When this balance is there i find life is like a river flowing. When im out of this balance its like trying to swim upstream! As long as I stay in balance with Him I can know that how my life unfolds it is going to be good bc He is guiding…I want to give God the reins and then get out of my own way and leave the trust with Him. God I trust you with me. He’s got this! Amen.

“And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.”

  1. Thanks for the add on Yelp. You have a very interesting site. Reading the above reminded me of something I wrote four years ago:

    One thing I have learned pretty quickly being now removed from my group. You can attend every week, work with others, do what is required so to speak and still be disconnected from God.

    I think a lot of people do this. It becomes empty ceremony. How much meaning can something have if I do it every day? Like saying “I love you” before hanging up the phone. It’s like a great piece of music when you hear it for the first time and fall in love with it instantly. You turn it up. Louder. Start mouthing the words. You want to hear it again and again. But then after a while, the love affair loses it’s luster. You listen less and less. You turn it down. You play it in the background while you are doing other things. You stop listening altogether. Eventually, it gets relegated to the scrapheap of life with a million other things. Books, people, clothing, exercise regimes…stuff. Dogma can be ‘stuff’ too. We pick it up and put it down all the time. Fall in love with it, run it through it’s useful life with everything else and then let it go. The only way to keep it is to continue to analyze it, find a new twist, make it ‘new’ again. A new meaning on this page, a new thought, a new person to work with.

    Or you can quit going and be unhappy sometimes.

    I think real growth, not just doing what others tell us do or falling in line and just following everybody to the ‘spiritual awakening ahead’ sign has to come from within to be lasting. This real growth so to speak also must come at the expense of something that has to be endured. It has to be mine and only mine. It is ONLY at these times that I am truly trusting God. We can’t all be happy all the time. Do I trust God enough to know that I will be happy again? Can I stand the pain of not knowing? It is at these times when I am connected with God the most. I don’t have an answer, I have exhausted all my resources, given everyone the wrong impresssion of me, quit listening to others and trying on their solutions like some sort of ill-fitting garment and am left with nothing else. It is just me and God. Then and only then do my answers come directly from God. But they come slowly. Nothing I have ever read in a book, no spoken word, no ‘design for living’, or anything else for that matter i have found to replace this. Do this often enough and trusting God becomes more natural but not any easier. I just have to wait and not make a bigger mess of things in the meantime.

    I am still pretty messy.
