“Trusting in the Lord with all your heart is the only right way to live. So what does that kind of passionate faith look like? It turns your wringing hands into praising hands – not because you naturally rise every morning feeling perky and carefree, but because deep down you choose to believe worry is worthless and praise is priceless.
If you trust in God, He will indeed work all things for your good (see Romans 8:28). You can count on it. That kind of trust – which is so very counter to what the world preaches – releases you from a life without hope. And it gives you the freedom to know joy – even amid earthly sorrows.
Prayer: Lord, please lift my head from the mire of my worries to a greater faith in You. Amen.
