"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house." Matthew 5:14-15

"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it." Matthew 13:45-46

Trust

I will be glad and rejoice in your love,
    for you saw my affliction
    and knew the anguish of my soul.
But I trust in you, O Lord;
    I say, “You are my God.”

Psalm 31:7 & 14

I praise God for His word, His promises, and His encouragement when He knows we need it the most. My heart was in utter anguish earlier this morning, as I faced yet again a situation that is heavy and hurtful in my life. I cried out to the Lord, not only because of the heartache and turmoil, but also the desire not to be embittered by the circumstance.

As I cried out to the Lord, I happened to hear a short blip on the radio, and one word stood out - Trust. Through my prayers and tears, I opened up a book I'm reading by Debbie Macomber called One Perfect Word and read the title of the next chapter - Trust. Coincidence? No, I'm sure it was part of God's ultimate timing, knowing what I needed to hear today.

I call to you, O Lord, every day;
    I spread out my hands to you. 
Psalm 88:9

I praise God for His encouragement when we need it the most.

I have not visited in quite a while now. Just a lot going on and have not read blogs as much as I used to. But this really blessed me today! I,too, have been going through a trying and rather hurtful circumstance and this was very encouraging to me. Trust! I know that's what I need to do also!

Thanks for sharing!
