Learn to trust God

Good morning, Dear friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! It is definitely cooler this morning! I was tempted to go for a walk before breakfast or praying, but knew that I would be much later getting things done that need to be done, so...maybe later!

There are such strange geckos, or lizards, critters, anyway, hanging around my front door. A tiny flat one with a striped tail was plastered against the wall right beside the door one morning, and I also found a dried one on my floor. IT had been in the house too long. They are always running in and out of the mailbox, so getting the mail is always an adventure!

I went to the park yesterday After a wonderful worship service yesterday. Several ibises were gathered in a tree, which is unusual for them, but they were just looking down into the canal, resting their beaks I guess. The nice wind was blowing and several people were walking with their camera and binoculars ready. God is good!

From the Knowing God devotional:

Lord, I give myself to you; my God, I trust you. Psalm 25:1-2 NCV

If you want to know God, then you must learn to trust God. Yet sometimes, when you feel overwhelmed by fears and doubts, you'll find that trusting God is difficult. So here's a question for you to ponder. Are you willing to trust God completely or are you still sitting squarely on the spiritual fence? The answer to this question will determine the tone, the quality and the direction of your life.

Trusting God means trusting Him with every aspect of your life. You must trust Him with your relationships, your dreams, your finances, and your career. You must follow His commandments, and you must pray for His g

When you trust your Heavenly Father without reservation, you can be sure that, in His own fashion and in His own time, God will reveal Himself to you in ways that you could never have imagined. So trust Him. And then prepare yourself for the abundance and the joy that will most certainly be yours when you do.

"As God's children, we are the recipients of lavish love-a love that motivates us to keep trusting even when we have no idea what God is doing."
-Beth Moore

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, with thanksgiving, joy and love!!

Love and hugs,
