Trusting a Painful Process

I’ve been struggling with this one lately. God has opened up this HUGE opportunity for me and my next step in my life as a missionary. And I thought I knew His timing, however, nothing seems to be happening yet. It has been getting in the way of having good relationships with people, and also impacting my faith. There are days where I feel so depressed and I don’t understand why. But why is it so hard for me to trust in God?

I’ve been thinking about this. Maybe the reason we can’t trust God as much as we’d like is that whenever we put our trust in people, things, or situations- THE WORLD, we are failed. The world fails us. Now I know God would never fail us. That’s the difference between us and Him, and that’s what sets Him apart from us. But I need to start practicing trust. Almost like a trust fall with God. Except being reluctant to fall into the arms of God, we should RUN AFTER Him and let Him embrace us with His love, grace, and His trustworthiness. Keep praying, keep seeking, keep trusting.

Jeremiah 17:7-8

“7 But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
    whose confidence is in him.
They will be like a tree planted by the water
    that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
    its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
    and never fails to bear fruit.”

When we place our trust in God- WE DON’T HAVE TO WORRY ANYMORE!!! CRAZY!
