In God We Trust?

“I don’t care if he kills me, I like him anyway!” That’s what one of my friend’s husband said about his heart doctor. I laughed but also have to say I have never appreciated any doctor that much. Of course, it brought to mind Job’s words, “Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him” (Job 13:15). I believe Job was sincere because he had already suffered so much that only death was left. We can say in God we trust (even on our money) but do we really? Trust in someone other than ourselves, even God, is hard; we like to be in control of our lives. We aren’t. We don’t know when we wake up what’s going to happen that day, no matter how well planned. As a tightly scheduled person all my adult life, it’s nice now I’m retired to ease up a bit. Sometimes I even put my lists aside and say, “All right, God, what do you have in store for me today?” It’s very freeing.

  1. Love this post. I have pain and am learning that a lot of it is because I am just uptight! Partly my God given personality and partly life’s circumstances, but my “exercise” this week seems to be answering THE question. Exactly what do I not trust God with in my life? Yeah! Getting some answers!


  2. Love the concept of the potential for living sacrifices to crawl off of the alter! My thing was turning my children over to God in prayer and shortly clutching them all back….. finally, now that they are all over 40, I am able to allow God to work with them on His terms! Yes, chuckle!


    1. You’re right. Giving my children totally over to God, that’s the most difficult “abandonment” to accomplish. But also the most necessary for their sakes. It’s still hard!
