do I trust...

Do I trust when Him when He says that He has the whole thing under control...
That He loves my children more than I do and knows whats best for them,
or that He is helping my husband become who he was always meant to be from the inside out so I don't need to be in control of every situation.... that when everything feels like it's spinning out of control that I truly can grab for dear life to the One that created me..... unique and individual and only one of me.

Do I truly believe it when I tell everyone that He can do anything.....that I trust whatever He has in store for me is better than anything I could ever aspire to dream?  
He is slowly teaching me that I can trust Him and the only way to find true rest is in Him.  
There's nothing that comes even close, even though I try to find other ways to rest, it's empty.... never fills the hole that I need to fill up so I can love others the way He says we all can. 

You can't love others if you don't have a well to draw from....if you let the well run dry then you start spitting dust and muck and then you're in trouble.  Let Him fill you up, Trust that He knows you best, knows exactly what you need, and can truly provide that for you if you only ask and are willing....

I'm writing along with the Gypsy Mama over at her place for Five Minute Fridays, won't you come check it out and perhaps even join us?

We write because we want to, not because we have to. We write for fun, for joy, for discovery.
On Fridays we just write without worrying if it’s just right or not.


  1. Sarah what a beautiful post about trusting in the one who will never let us down. Thank you for sharing your thoughts today!

  2. Beautiful thoughts, Sarah. I am finding, too, that the only way I find true rest is if I put all my trust in Him. And even though I know that....why is it still so hard? Well, I'm striving. Every day. thank you for your encouragement!

    All for Him,

  3. Amazing isn't it what we can know in our hearts, yet there are so many moments when our thought and our actions don't reflect what we KNOW! And yet trust increases every time we are willing to practice it.
    So glad you stopped by- love your blog. :)

  4. its hard to get our heads and our hearts to match sometimes, isn't it? great words.
