Trust

Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts. Col. 3:16

The  message of Christ is redemption, transformation, grace, joy, and freedom. Trust is involved in receiving and experiencing that message. We choose whether to receive from a perspective of belief in Christ. We can choose to believe we are loved, that God is benevolent, that He is good, that He can be trusted with everything, even the things we can’t understand, control, or change. Or we can choose to receive our experiences from a perspective of fear, doubt, or resentment.Relationship with God is not always based on how we feel. Sometimes it’s based on what we believe. Sometimes it’s both. Sometimes it’s neither. Our perspectives can change. We can’t always trust our perspective. God’s love remains. We can always trust Him.

Thanks this day when my heart is full of gratitude and trust. Thanks for sticking with me when every song gets stuck in my throat.
