My pastor today preached on something I have become very familiar with over the past few years – Trust. Specifically, trusting God above our circumstances. This has been an area that I have been living, with so much change, so many hard days, so many consequences I didn’t ask for. How do I trust God above what I’m experiencing in my circumstances?
One thing I have come to learn, is that I had WAY too much faith and trust in “god’s people.” Those that claimed they were brother’s and sisters, ‘surrogate family’, but when it came down to it, have caused the most disruption in my life. Trust in people has been challenged, severely challenged.
And for that I am thankful.
I have been able to get to know God in a much deeper way. Trust him beyond what I do see, so that I don’t feel the sting of when people choose to react negatively. This is for sure an area that I’m still growing in. When your circumstances are challenging, it is difficulty to trust what you can’t see. But I’m confident that God does not respond the same way people do, and for that, I am thankful.
