Just Trust Me... But I Love It God


There will always be a point in life when the perfect job/house/partner (insert anything you want here really!) comes along and you just know that it can't get any better than that... Then the bottom falls out of your world when it passes you by. WHY GOD? I have cried this so many times in my life, how can He do this to me, how can He take it away from me when it was just PERFECT.

That's the thing though, WE might think it's perfect from our own little sheltered corner of the world but we aren't looking outside that. God can see the bigger picture, He can see what is "just around the corner". One of the sayings I hang on to is "Hindsight is 20/20", it really is that simple. When we get past the fact that our hypothetical perfect life just passed us by and we start living again we can find that there may be something better for us.

Hindsight Is 20/20

To be able to attest to trusting God and believing that He's not letting the "good things" pass us by we have to be able to give it all to God, everything! We can't rely on our own knowledge of what is right for us just as children need boundaries and help to make sense of the world so do we as God's children. As a parent, I want the best for my children and I know that God wants the best for me too but it doesn't always mean that I trust His judgement! Just like a child I whine at Him "But Daddy, I know that is the perfect job for me", "How can you take this amazing thing away from me?" and then round the corner is something even better. How stupid and guilty I feel for not trusting that He knows everything, what's been and what's to come.
Wait patiently for the Lord.    Be brave and courageous.    Yes, wait patiently for the Lord. ~ Psalm 27:14
Sometimes I need to learn how to wait patiently for God, for His timing, for His plan but unfortunately I'm not very good at that. I always thinking my way is the right way. I think I may need to add this verse on a sticky note next to my bed, just as a reminder of how to live each day. To start each day with this Psalm and walk with those words in my heart.

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. ~ Proverbs 3:5-6
One thing we can take heart with is the fact that He DOES know what our path brings, He has been there before and can see our future. Being the loving God that He is I feel comforted by the fact that I will not be let down and that He has the best for me in store. Nothing in front of me should be feared or worried about because I know He will not steer me wrong... if I trust Him!!

God Bless,
Effie

    1. Oh Nannette you are so right, I saw it online - I don't know who the illustrator was (I did try hard to find them!) but they hit the nail on the head and it pulled at my heart strings because I know I do the same thing!!
