What do you do when you’ve done everything you know to do? When you’ve prayed and you’ve waited and you’ve worried and wondered—what’s next?
We trust the anguish and pain we feel will one day accomplish something for God’s glory.
We trust the tears that flow like a river will one day be dried by his comforting hand.
We trust that the hard days ahead will grow easier by his peaceful presence walking hand in hand with our grief.
We trust in the unseen and the unheard and the unimaginable and wait for the seen and heard and possible because we know the God of impossibilities.
We trust that the answer to our prayers is wrapped as a gift rather than a curse and although it may feel far from good right now, we know the giver of all good gifts does not leave us stranded, forgotten or alone.
We trust in our shield, our refuge, our fortress and our strong tower.
We trust the father to the fatherless, the husband to the widow, the shepherd to the flock, the cornerstone of the church.
So in these in between moments where our head and feelings don’t feel trustworthy, we trust in the name of the Lord our God.
Until he fixes it, makes it better or rescues us, we trust.
Psalm 20:7b We trust in the name of the Lord our God.
