Stepping Stones: Trust With All Your Heart and Mind

Stepping Stones: Trust With All Your Heart and Mind
September 30, 2009 Lighthouse Network

Transformational Tip
My mother had a couple of Christian themes that she tried to embed in the minds of us children. One of those themes was to trust God with our whole heart and minds. Not just to mouth the words, rather to live like we trusted Him completely. I put this to practical application one day when I was 6 years old. I was climbing the old plum tree in the back yard and decided to hang upside down off a branch like a possum. I could not get myself back up onto the branch…I was stuck. After yelling frantically for my mom, the often delivered message came to my mind; trust God with everything. So I closed my eyes and asked God to get me out of this tree. I immediately fell out of the tree into a soft pile of sand in our sandbox. I was so excited to tell my mom that trusting God really works. Mom always loved to retell that story.
Today, practice trusting in God with more and more areas of your life. Instead of fearing and running away from situations, embrace them with an eagerness to gain all the blessings God has hidden in those difficulties.

Prayer
Dear Father God,
I believe Father that You are sovereign over every aspect of my life…and that it is possible to trust You in all situations. Help me Lord to stop wasting so much energy regretting the way things are or thinking about what might have been. Help me Lord begin now, at the present moment – accepting things exactly as they are – and to search for Your way in the very midst of my situation. I pray this with confidence in the name of my savior Jesus Christ, and all God’s people said, – AMEN!

The Truth
But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God’s unfailing love forever and ever.
Psalm 52:8
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
Proverbs 3:5-6
He said to them, “Why are you so afraid? Have you still no faith?”
Mark 4:40
