Dangling from my bible is a beaded bookmark I made years ago. The square beads reflect the lamplight as the word TRUST comes into focus. I sit and marvel at such a creation (and not because I made it during a Susie-homemaker-crafty mood.) Did I know years ago, that I would need to be reminded in the Fall of 2012 to Trust?
God is up to something and I don’t know what it is, but I feel it. I mean, I F-e-e-l-i-t! I feel God pulling me out of my comfortable little life. To do what? I’m not exactly sure.
Isaiah 43:19 springs to mind “See, I am doing a New Thing!”
There is a scene from the Disney movie Aladdin that continues to replay over and over in my mind. Aladdin and Princess Jasmine are trying to escape this city, the enemy is closing in. Aladdin reaches down and says to Jasmine “Do you trust me?” I feel God reaching down to me saying the same thing, “April, Do you trust me?”
Last night, I shared with my neighbor how I feel God pulling me. His words are still resonating in my mind today. He said, “Are you being pulled or pushed? If you feel pulled, then it is because you are offering up resistance.”
Lord, I don’t know what you are doing or what your plans are for me. But I trust you. Forgive me for any way that I am resisting you or offering resistance toward your will for me. Again, Lord it comes down to three words. I. Trust. You!
“May you can I be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith.” Romans 1:12
