Fear · Peace · Trust

thoughts on trust…

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
Proverbs 3:5 ESV
Trust… I’ve been thinking about it… in preparation for the upcoming study… the step of faith…
Trying to put to words…
what it means to me to trust Him…
what I’ve learned about trust…
What I noticed today…
fear… anxiety… the primary indicators…
that I am not trusting Him… in any given moment…
I still find it a battle at times…
my own thoughts… understanding of danger…
of what’s bad… and… good…
takes over…
and I fear…
because I’ve lost my trust in Him…
Fear… leads me to prayer… and praise…
seeking forgiveness for not trusting…
praising Him for being trustworthy…
and the plans He has in all things…
Fear… an indicator of a spirit… devoid of trust in Him…
You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you,
because he trusts in you.
Isaiah 26:3 ESV
