Another Reason to Trust

Night falls.
As my weary body and brain fall into bed, they lose their tenacity to fight
and the old anxieties creep in.
How will you pay for that?
Can it possibly work out?
What if . . . ?

I ward it off with as much as energy as I have,
calling on the name of Jesus,
bringing to mind His gentle words.
Trust Me.

The wonderful man sleeping next to me starts to snore
and suddenly I'm aware of God's past provision,
His answer to my prayer thirty years ago
which surpassed my every expectation.

I settle into the warmth of my husband's body,
inhaling his familiar aroma with every breath
and I thank God.

How can I question His love for me,
why do I doubt He will handle my problems
when this is my life every night?

Truly God is good.
He knows exactly what I need.
There is nothing to fear.

Tami - Isn't it amazing that God continues to love us - ALL THE TIME - even when we sometimes doubt his provision?
Amazing, but true! Have a good day - Marsha

Thankyou for your kind comment on my blog. We're all on a journey with God and it's good to look back and see how far he's already brought us.
