Trust When?

Trusting God is no easy feat. It is so easy to get caught up in a whirlwind of worry and get strangled by simple tasks. What do I mean by simple tasks? I mean when you get stressed out about your Economics exam tomorrow, speech that you need to prepare, SATs that you need to study for, a messy room, articles that you are behind on, a task you haven't started, and a worn-out body that needs more sleep. Only do you realize just how bad your attitude may look when you little sister says, "what's up?" and then tells you to trust God. Ouch. Yep, trusting God is no easy feat. Is it possible? Absolutely. When? All the time. How? With the strength and power of God. We can only experience the love and mercy and power of Jesus Christ when we choose to completely worship Him. Please notice that I said choose to worship Him, not feel like worshipping Him. Most of the time we will never "feel like it," but we can always choose to live it.

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." ~Philippians 4:13

Hey Kaytlynn!

This post was really supposed to motivate and inspire me to trust in God with everything--every area! All of the "stressors" mentioned in the article are real-life things that I am going through right now. I am praying for you!!
