Trusting God is so simple. Why do I make it so hard?

“We do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day.  For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.”

2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (NASB)

I absolutely love it when God screams at me.

Yesterday, my sweet friend who I affectionately call my PDQT… not because she has an ounce of drama in her being but because she absolutely LOVES anything PURPLE… and I accidentally came across the “fact” that the color purple translates into “drama queen”… again, I digress… well, she posted a simple phrase that I can’t get out of my head.  “We have to trust God to blow our sail in the right direction and stay on board for the ride!”

Then this morning, I read the passage from 2 Corinthians for the umpteeteenth time and finally GOT IT!

So stay in the safety of God’s sailboat until HE tells me to get out.  Quit trying to set my own sails.  TRUST HIM.  This is a season in life and He is in charge of all of the seasons.  When He wants me to step into the waters, He will show me the way.  Trust.  Simply trust…
