Can I Trust God?

“Trust God from the bottom of your heart;
Don’t try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
He’s the one who will keep you on track.”
Proverbs 3:5-6 (MSG)

No matter what situations you face in the coming year:
Wordle: Need to Trust God For...

God says to Trust Him from the bottom of your heart—from your deepest core.
Know that He hears and sees your need. He wants you to look to Him and be amazed as He works in your life.
He promises:
       To never leave you 
       To provide your needs
       To answer your prayer (maybe not your answer, but the one that’s for your best)
Will you trust Him to know what you need?
Will you allow Him to figure it out for your best?
What do you need to trust God for in 2014?
How can I pray for you?
                           He is  Able!

  1. Jeanne,

    This is my word for 2014: Trust. Thank you for the encouragement. You may pray for me to trust God each day. :) Thank You!

  2. Trust is a perfect word for every day, Jean. Praying you find Him trustworthy in all your needs.
    Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts

  3. Love your heart rock image! I have a rock like that from my husband. Well loved scripture!

    Yes, we can always trust Him no matter what our circumstances are!

  4. Jeanne,
    Thank you for this short but meaningful post! Today I experienced God's leading. Through a number of different circumstances coming together, I realized I am to write my book Stepping Out ... in Faith (It's about Cane Training, since I'm losing my vision). Please pray that I stay on track with my book when the joy of learning that this is where God wants me to focus my energies on wears off. I've set myself a March 31 deadline. Some of the book is written but I'm reshaping it to meet the needs of others suffering from progression vision loss, too. BTW, I saw your She Speaks badge from Proverbs 31 Conference. I attended one year, too! =)

  5. Thanks for visiting, Carrie Ann Tripp. I have a collection of heart shaped rocks myself. I found my first one after praying..."Lord, you know my heart." Finding it spoke to mine. And, I want to trust Him for every need despite what my heart tells me.

  6. Trusting God with you, Amy. I have also set a goal and a March deadline for my book topic on fear. He will lead you, my friend!
    Small world, about the She Speaks you do much speaking?
    Praying for His direction on your life.

  7. I have noticed that God uses the most painful and darkest moments to prepare us for His plans. When it hurts the most, and when trusting Him is the most difficult, is the most important moment to pray and praise Him.

  8. So true, Joanna! And praise is one of the weapons we have against the fear and discouragement. Trusting in the darkness is difficult; but thankful that His light shines in the darkness, bringing us hope.
    Thanks for sharing your thoughts and stopping by.

  9. I so needed to read your post today! Thank you

  10. God is good, Kim, and very trustworthy. Thanks for stopping by to share your thoughts.
    Praying for you,

  11. Dear Jeanne, I am praying that Christian nurses would be encouraged to shine as a bright light for the Lord to their patients today at work. I pray God would give me wisdom and strength in writing my blog for them.

  12. Thanks for shining His light to the world you work in, Pam. I know you are trusting Him for the outcome. Your words will help to encourage and equip nurses as they comfort and care for their patients.

  13. Thank-you, for sharing Jeanne. This is right on. "Allowing Him to figure it out" has recently become my air-in prayer. You've been such an encouragement. Please continue!

  14. Becky, thanks for your thoughts. I like your 'air in prayer'--never heard that before. Trusting Him to figure it out is so hard--we want to do it in our time and our way. I hope I get better at yielding to Him...
