One More Opportunity to Trust God

During our present state of dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, do you find yourself in a place of being given one more opportunity to trust God? I am.

Because of that, I looked back through Woven and Spun’s archives for a post which might speak hope into our hearts. The following post first appeared on Woven and Spun July 9, 2013. I pray it is meaningful to you.

July 9, 2013

Last week I sat in my family practitioner’s office where she told me I should have come in to see her a week earlier. Although I am fond of my doctor, I do not like going to her office. I’d been dealing with this particular health concern for over two weeks before I finally made the appointment to see her. I think — hope — the medicine she gave me is working.

If not…off to a specialist. Here again, I like this physician. Just don’t like going to his office. Especially in light of the last procedure he performed. Think needles. And a lot of pain.

As I thought about this current problem, I remembered all the many, many, many things God has gotten me through. Opportunities to trust God, as one dear, sweet friend calls them. I realize this present situation is minor in comparison to those in my past.

I also think about people I know and the difficult opportunities to trust God they currently face.

Dialysis or kidney transplant?

Place loved one in a nursing home or take care of him at home?

Surgery or chemo?

Confront with God’s truth or allow child to go down the wrong path?

Stay or go?

Stand up against the bully or continue to be bullied?

Tell the kids you can’t afford it or go deeper in debt?

Is this the one or do I wait for another?

Speak the truth in love or let it slide?

Step out in faith or not?

Tough decisions. Tough situations. Tough circumstances. Tougher God.

Perhaps you are in one of those opportunities to trust God situations right now. If you are, please know I’m praying for everyone who reads this post that you will find peace in your circumstance, continue to trust God knowing He is faithful, and possess wisdom to know what to do next.

So what do we do? Where do we turn? Who do we lean on?

How about we go to Jesus?

Our Lord and our God, you are my mighty rock, my fortress, my protector. You are the rock where I am safe. You are my shield, my powerful weapon, and my place of shelter. You rescue me and keep me from being hurt. 2 Samuel 22:2-3 (CEV)

I wish you well.

Opportunity to Trust God

I just received word an article I wrote for Today’s Christian Woman, “Letting Go”, went live July 10, 2013 on TodaysChristianWoman.com’s ParentConnect site.

This post talks about opportunities God gives us to trust him. “Letting Go” tells of an opportunity God gave me to trust him, over 30 years ago. Today’s Christian Woman has asked me to spread the word about the article, so that’s what I’m doing. 😉
