Trust God

Trust God

"Let go and let God" is a popular slogan but very difficult to do. We want to do things ourselves, trusting in our own understanding and abilities when it comes to our marriage and relationships. As you know, this doesn’t work. At some point we all recognize there are limits to our skills, strengths and even intellectual prowess. During a stressful time in Abram’s life, God came to him in a vision and said, “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your very great reward.” (Genesis 15:1) Can you trust God to be your shield and great reward?
