Long in Trust
Today's reading: Psalm 13:1-6
Have you ever asked God, "How long?" or, "God, do you see what I'm going through?" Have you ever said to Him, "This situation is killing me. Where are You?" I certainly have. Like David, I talk candidly with God and tell Him all of the "yuck" that I'm thinking and feeling. What I've found is that having that conversation has a way of refocusing me on God and His goodness. That, in turn, leads me to look back and recall how God has worked wonders in my life and provided for me over and over again, and that whole experience then encourages me and gives me the strength to say to God--no matter my circumstances--"I love You, I trust You, and I will wait for You."
Do you talk candidly with God when you're struggling? Do you look back and remember how has God "dealt bountifully" with you in the past? Will you join me today in telling God how much you trust Him with your circumstances? Tami
