This touched my heart

Do you ever think, “How much do I really trust God?”

This morning I was reading Tim Challie’s blog, and was so blessed and encouraged to trust the Lord in a more real way after reading his heart-searching post. I especially could see a similar failure of faith in my own life:

I trust the Lord for myself. I honestly believe that I am willing to suffer, even unto death, for the sake of the gospel, BUT . . . I do not have such a vibrant and living trust that the Lord will provide for my family without me, or without my husband. God’s word clearly states But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice. . . A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation. – Psalm 68:3,5.

While the Lord grants me continuance of health and life, I will minister to my family. But, by His grace, I will seek more and more to entrust their well-being TO THE LORD.

See what you think. Do you also find this article convicting and yet helpful?
