Walk with me

I was thinking while walking my dog this morning. [He’s a Shih Tzu. He’s delicate and stubborn. It’s embarrassing.] My thoughts were focused on trust because I’ve been pondering a verse I recently read.

Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. (Ephesians 3:17)

God wants us to trust Him. It’s the cornerstone of faith. Trust is essential to relationship. In fact, I’d argue that without it relationship is impossible (or at least severely limited).

Here’s the thing with trust. Listen. It takes time. Here’s a related truth about God. He’s not in a hurry. He’s the author of time.

I know I can trust God because I have a lifetime of evidence. He’s shown me grace and mercy and blessings far beyond anything I deserved. Over and over again. I’ll bet that if you look carefully, you’ll see His strong hand in your life as well.

As we walk with God we learn to trust Him, our faith grows. We experience deeply-rooted unconditional love. God is whispering to you right now. Right this minute. “Walk with me.”

Go!

    Thank you for the reminder. Simple articles like this remind me that “he has got me”. In his grace, statistics don’t apply and the stability lobe cannot be predicted because all things will work together for good.
