My One Word for 2012 – Trust

"Do you trust Me?"

For the past year I’ve felt God asking me if I trust Him. I thought I did. And yet when I don’t understand, I question and doubt. I know my faith and trust in Him have grown, but I still have so far to go. So, I continue to work on trusting Him.

I trusted Him as He led me outside of my comfort zone. Now I look back and know that He never left me, but continued to guide me all along. By following Him I have been blessed. I have proof that I can trust Him. I shouldn’t needed proof, but He graces me with it anyway.

I know He will continue to lead and bless me. As long as I trust Him. So that is my focus—complete and unhesitant trust in God.

When I doubt and worry sets in, I will trust Him.
When I don’t understand, I will trust Him.
When I am afraid, I will trust Him.
When I don’t feel His presence, I will trust Him.
When the storms of life whip around me, I will trust Him.
And when it’s calm again, I will trust Him. 

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 NIV)

  1. Trust is a great word! Sometimes I think I trust Him, but then I find myself striving and worrying and trying to do things on my own. When I surrender and Trust Him, everything just works out better.

  2. Amen to that!! Thanks for visiting Barbie!

  3. Trust is a wonderful word and sometimes the hardest, not that we don't want to trust but sometimes the trusting leads us into our insecurities and need for control. We want to trust yet so often we take it back with conditions.
    Great word.

  4. beautiful post...and something I need to remind myself of...simply trust. Don't try to figure things out with your limited brain. Thanks Laura
