C.S. Lewis wrote ... "To trust Him means, of course, trying to do all that He says. There would be no sense in saying you trusted a person if you would not take his advice. Thus if you have really handed yourself over to Him, it must follow that you are trying to obey Him. But trying in a new way, a less worried way."
The challenge is to put more confidence in God's ability than in my own. To not try and analyze and figure out every detail myself. But to place my belief in God's wisdom, His love, and His strength. To lean on God instead of relying on myself or on anyone, anything, else.
I don't have to understand everything. I don't have to know everything.
But, am I going to trust the One who does know and understand???
Lord, help me trust you.
I believe. Help Thou my unbelief.
