Make Sure Your Foundation Is Trust In God

 "I know that I can trust You...

I lean not on my own understanding

My life is in the hands of the Maker of Heaven"
("Climb" by Will Reagan and United Pursuit)

When I sing these words from Will Reagan's song, "Climb," I realize two things - just how true those words are and just how far I have to go in wholeheartedly living them out. I completely believe the Bible and the Bible says that God is trustworthy, but there is a kind of "I know" that means I really truly know it personally and intimately. I KNOW that I can trust Him is something we learn and grow in throughout our journey of walking in a living, breathing, growing relationship with God. There have been many times over the years that I may have struggled to sing those words with personal assurance.
-When I went through my own personal time of deep darkness, depression and despair.
-In our "Job season" when it seemed like we lived in a perfect storm of whatever could go wrong did go wrong.
-When I watched my oldest daughter struggle through year after year of infertility and miscarriages.
-When I saw my second born lose all hope for the dreams God had given her.
-When my youngest daughter felt like the desires in her heart would never come to pass.
-But now, as I look back through those experiences in hindsight, I can see clearly that through it all God really did have a good plan for us all along.

I know that in the middle of whatever mess you're facing, "I know that I can trust You",  can be the hardest words in the world to say and to live wholeheartedly. But can I encourage you to say them anyway, to sing them anyway, loud enough for the enemy to hear your declaration and long enough for the words to sift past your tumultuous emotions and take root in your heart. Someday you'll look back and see God's hand at work through it all and you'll see that He was trustworthy even when it didn't feel like He was there for you. One day you will sing with assurance,"I KNOW that I can trust You," with a heart overflowing with gratitude for God's faithful care through it all.
