Trust in the Lord!

"Trust God from the bottom of your heart, don't try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go, he's the one who will keep you on track." Prov. 3:5-6 The Message

Trust is a difficult thing. Sometimes, when times get rough, we begin to second guess ourselves and our ability to hear from God. It's not that we don't trust in God, but we wonder if we heard from Him correctly and if we are really on the right path. We often view the center of God's will as the 'perfect' place to be in that everything will be smooth, easy, and beautiful. While being in the center of God's will for your life is the "perfect" place to be, it doesn't always mean there will be no bumps in the road. God's will for Jesus' life was not easy. God's plan was for His very own son to die on the cross, a horrible wicked death; however, His ultimate plan was resurrection and power over the grip of sin--Victory! If Jesus had not trusted God the Father and continued in the path of His purpose through death on the cross, we would never know grace and forgiveness for our sins.

Sometimes, we walk through difficult times and we wonder if we are on the right path at all. The verse above states, "Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he's the one who will keep you on track." If you are listening for God's voice and you know you are in His will, don't second guess Him. You might hit rough times; finances might be tight (or non-existant!), but He will provide for ALL your needs! We cannot figure out the mind of God and His answers to our prayers may not be the way we expect them, but He will take care of His people if we will trust Him and follow His voice.

I know He has called us to adopt and we will take one step at a time. As long as we are following God's will, I beleive He will make a way.
