“What time I am afraid, I will trust in Thee.” This has been a comfort verse for me since my childhood. I was one of those kids who could easily imagine a monster in my closet. When the Father drew me to Himself, fear found relief. The Almighty, Unchangeable One is to be trusted.
Our thoughts get so mucked up in the mundane struggles. Finances often bring the biggest, gut-wrenching fears, yet I have seen the provision of the LORD time again in our married life. So, why does the news that gas could reach $5.00 a gallon this summer send me into a tailspin? I should know better by now. Reach for a promise, pray without ceasing, and give thanks for all things. I WILL trust. Obviously it is a daily decision, and a lesson that may take me a lifetime to learn. If I were comfortably provided for by an able-bodied husband, perhaps I would not be learning this lesson so thoroughly?
