Friday Verse Journal Psalms 27:14

046

 

Once again, I am one day late on this; it seems I need an extra day to pray and dwell on this post. Each new day in life can be full of unanswered questions and new challenges. Just when I think I have found solutions, a new dilemma arises. And often, it is an unwelcomed problem. Among other lessons, I know God is nearby and is teaching to continue in faith when the path ahead is cloudy and obscure. He is teaching me to continue to trust in him when I am having a hard time trusting in others. He is teaching me to continue in prayer even when I am at a loss for words.  He is teaching me to remain at peace when I see a river of trouble ahead. And when I am most impatient for answers and solutions to all of my dilemmas, he is teaching me to be patient and wait; with a peaceful, sincere, and believing heart, I am to patiently and quietly wait on the Lord.

Psalms 27:14 (Holy Bible New International Version):

“Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait on the Lord.”

Trying To Trust God Today

046

I’m trying to trust God today and not rush in anything I do or say.

Such a challenging thing to do, to just trust, believe and to God stay true.

So many times, I just won’t believe, if one mishap occurs, I fail so miserably.

I fail to stop, pray and wait for God to show me which path to take.

I fail to pause and quietly listen to the loving and guiding words coming from him.

When trouble does suddenly brew, I tense up tight wondering, “What should I do?”

In my anxious and frantic state I might cry out, “Now, what? Who made this mistake?”

So I fume to God’s dismay refusing his tender nudge to accept his wiser way.

So often I fail to understand God’s love and his gentle guiding hand.

I fail to joyfully gaze and see, his fatherly eyes silently watching me.

I fail to believe and know that he’s determined where my path should go.

I fail to sit so quietly and just let his perfect calming peace come rest in me.

But today, I am trying hard to keep my eyes closely focused on the Lord

Therefore I am trying to trust God today and not rush in anything I do or say.
