Trust in the Lord... How do you get there?

"Verily I say unto you my friends, fear not, let your hearts be comforted; yea rejoice evermore, and in everything give thanks;

"Waiting patiently on the Lord....For he will give unto the faithful line upon line, precept upon precept; and I will try you and prove you herewith."-

This scripture has been on my mind lately, probably for the fact that I struggle to grasp the concept in my life.

There is so much to do. So many important things to accomplish, and so many imperfections and mistakes that get in the way of accomplishing them.

Does this sound familiar to anyone?

All I can share is the results from my own experiences;

You feel like you are running in sand!

(A whole lot of exhaustion for a little amount of distance)

I'm hoping there is a cure.

So if you find yourself feeling like I do, or have found yourself in such a situation, what is your experience? what do these things mean to you???


  1. I love this! It's one of my favorite scriptures and you can learn so much from it! This makes me think of Proverbs 3: 5-6..."Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy paths." It's so comforting to know that if we put our trust and faith in the Lord that he will lead us. Life seems hard but the Savior has been through it all for us.

  2. Thanks so much for your comment nat! And I am so so sorry my blog because quite inactive for awhile. But I am happy to be back!
    I love that scripture as well. I have a friend tell me once that people's stresses and concerns can be boiled down to one simple question; "Do I trust God?"
    This Morning I read in Matt 21:21-22

    "21 Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have afaith, and bdoubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this cmountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.

    22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall bask in cprayer, believing, ye shall receive."

    Sometimes I just need to remember to slow down, breath and ask in faith.
