Whatever happens…

My devotion reading the previous night should have been a red flag for what was to come. I like to live as close to naive as I can possibly get. So, I was completely shell-shocked when I arrived at work to find….yet again I would face another change.

What is it with me? Or should I say us? People? We think everything is groovy as long as it’s going our way! The slightest change or trial and we fold like a cheap tent! The first line in that devotion was….”I want you to learn a new habit.” The habit? Practice saying, “I trust You Jesus” in response to whatever happens to you.

I hear you laughing. It’s really fitting for a girl like me. Honestly! I ask for trouble! The devo goes on to say….when you view events from this perspective…..fear loses its grip on you and you grow in spite of the adverse circumstances…..which only affirms your trust in Me (Jesus)!

Yea, that’s a for sure no brainer! I thought it when I read it….and I know it today after surviving what I thought was a set-back in my life. God is always at work…..and I am most often living as a human filled with flesh that thinks with a flesh-like depth! Forgive my doubt, Lord. I need your direction….all the time!

7Where can I go from your spirit?
   Or where can I flee from your presence?
8If I ascend to heaven, you are there;
   if I make my bed in Sheol, you are there.
9If I take the wings of the morning
   and settle at the farthest limits of the sea,
10even there your hand shall lead me,
   and your right hand shall hold me fast.
Psalm 139:7-10

“I trust You Jesus”!
