Today is Trusting

Today is the 1 year anniversary of this blog. I was hoping to write what I’ve learned so far about my life in blog land, but that’s not going to happen today.

Today there are other things more weighty on my heart. Today there are tears of sorrow. Today there is wrestling with what is The truth and returning to that over and over. Today there is standing firm because God said to. Today there is trusting.

I’m just going to throw out the verses that God keeps bringing to my mind, my heart to heal, to comfort, to know.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5,6

“Yet you are enthroned as the Holy One; you are the praise of Israel. In you our fathers put their trust; they trusted and you delivered them. They cried to you and were saved; in you they trusted and were not disappointed.” Psalm 22: 4,5

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

“No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.” Hebrews 12:11

“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities- his eternal power and divine nature- have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.” Romans 1:20

“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?” Matthew 6:26

“For it is we who are the circumcision, we who worship by the spirit of God, who glory in Christ Jesus, and who put no confidence in the flesh.” Philippians 3: 3

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” Ephesians 6: 10, 12

“I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go.” Genesis 28:15
