Nuggets of Wisdom

This is the post each week where I share a few random but meaty thoughts about something God has shown me. This week's focus is slightly different.
  • You can trust God with your life.
  • YOU can trust God with your life.
  • You CAN trust God with your life.
  • You can TRUST God with your life.
It's the same sentence with the emphasis placed on a different word. Read it again and put the emphasis on the words in all caps.

My Friend, what I've learned didn't happen in a week. But I do feel as if I've had a crash course in this TRUST business over the past year. God is always there with you, even when you're not sure. Sometimes God is just waiting on you to turn to Him, to trust Him with your life. He delights in showing you (and me) how much He loves you.

Life can be difficult. If you don't have a storm brewing in your life right now, there are probably storms brewing all around you. You can feel life pressing in. When that happens, turn to God and press into Him. Trust Him with your life. He's waiting to shelter you in his arms.

I call on you, my God, for you will answer me;
    turn your ear to me and hear my prayer.
Show me the wonders of your great love,
    you who save by your right hand
    those who take refuge in you from their foes.
Keep me as the apple of your eye;
    hide me in the shadow of your wings
from the wicked who are out to destroy me,
    from my mortal enemies who surround me. 
~ Psalm 17:6-9

Your thoughts on putting a different emphasis on 'you can trust in God' reminds me of a saying I read in a book that encouraged us to repeat: 'Jesus saves me now.' Good reminders.
