The School of Trust

I feel lately like I have been enrolled into God's school of Trust. Oh yes. I just finished reading Beth Moore's new book, So Long Insecurity, and wanted to share. I think every woman/girl should read this book. It is powerful. I had NO IDEA how insecure I really was until I read this. I mean, I think as women we are all insecure to some point but I realized how many things I do out of insecurity. And now that I can recognize it - I can fight it! The last few chapters really spoke to me. It talks about how FEAR plays a part in trust and insecurity & I totally agree. There are things I am scared of, fearful of - things that I think will happen that probably won't, or things that I want to happen that I am afraid won't. I've had a few good reminders lately in the issue of trust & fear.

Beth says in her book that "when you feel that familiar panic {of something you greatly fear} begin to rise in your heart like a river coursing its banks and your soul begins to roll with another round of "what will i do if...." what would happen is you were willing to hear the voice of God whisper these inaudible words?
Child you are asking the wrong question. Here's the one that would assuage your fears: what will God do if....

Here's some Scripture that goes with what he would say:
I, the Maker of heaven and earth will:

Perfect everything that concerns you (psalm 138:8)
work all things together for your good (romans 8:28)
meet all your needs according to My glorious riches in Christ Jesus (phil 4:19)
do immeasurable more than you could ask or imagine, according to the power that is at work within you (eph 3:20)

Those my friends, are some of the scriptures that I have memorized/put on my email/ etc in the past few months. Isn't God good? He is for sure teaching me something & in this phase of my life where I am waiting and searching for what He is going to do next - it's exactly where He would have me. Although it's not always an easy place to be, He is stretching me and growing me in a way that would NOT happen if I was going going through life all fine and dandy. So I have to thank Him for the hard times, the times of searching and waiting because he is perfecting my faith & teaching me, showing me how to TRUST HIM no matter what the circumstance. The circumstance doesn't matter, I have to KNOW in my heart that no matter what happens - I will be ok because He works ALL things out for my good. Isn't that reassuring? wow. I love learning & I love what God is teaching me. Just had to share!
