On every spiritual path there comes the point where we must learn to trust God. We have to learn to let go and know that a Loving Creator has our best interests at heart. Sometimes life throws something at us that requires us to surrender and trust. Sometimes we choose to lean to trust because we know more doors will open in our lives.
When we go to bed at night, we know that gravity will not stop working or all the oxygen disappear from the air sometime during the night. Would it not be nice to have this trust that God will not only take care of things, but make them as grand as we can imagine? We trust that our food will cook when we heat it. Why not trust that God will transform anything we need into something even better?
When learning to swim, we learn to trust that we can float. Can we take that lesson and trust our feelings as we learned to trust the water? Can we learn to trust life to sustain us and provide for our growth?
Of course we must combine discernment with trust. We know the unexpected email we got telling us we won a lottery we never heard of is not something to trust. And learning to trust our own feelings will give us the discernment not to trust the person who is lying to us.
Trusting God is giving God permission to do wonderful things in our lives. We are God’s beloved children. How can it be otherwise?
