Questions: 6 Honest Answers About Trust

Trust in Him at all times, O people;
Pour out your heart before Him;
God is a refuge for us.

Here we are at Day 40! I could not have imagined all that God would do over this 40 Day Journey and how the Holy Spirit would work in my own heart. Look at how far the Lord has brought us and how much He has shown Himself to us. I know the Holy Spirit was at work to transform our hearts and lives. This journey was represented by many ages and walks of life. I had an interview with Libby, a fellow sojourner, to find out how the Lord was working in her heart through this 40 Day Journey of Trust. 

1. Libby, why did you decide to take the plunge and do the 40 Days of Trust? I know what I should be doing, trusting in the Lord, but yet it is so hard. I needed something to remind me to rely COMPLETELY on God; something to help keep my mind focused on things that are positive and the way God would want me to think.

2. Did you have something specific in mind when you started this 40 Day Journey that you would be placing before the Lord? When I started this journey I had two things that I had in mind that I needed to trust God for: one was complete healing of my mom and the other was passing my drivers test to get my license.

3. Have you had times during this period when you felt like you were not trusting? During this period there were definitely times I know I wasn't fully trusting in God.

4. What did you do during those times you felt like your trust was absent? While I was going through these times I kept quoting Philippians 4:6-7 over and over in my head and sometimes out loud. These Scriptures also reminded me to hand over these requests again and to trust that God is in control. 

5. Did God minister to you in unique ways during this time? God definitely ministered  to me through these times. There were several occasions where God either spoke directly to me or spoke to me through someone else.

6. And, we arrive at our final question. What did God show you about Himself as you went on this journey? He reminded me that He is in control and that whatever the outcome of these two requests he never changes and His love for me never changes; even when I'm not completely trusting Him. 

A special thanks to Libby for sharing her heart with us. God was working in Libby's heart AND mind over the past 40 Days. I'm sure He did this for you too. Maybe you participated with us from the beginning or maybe you joined us later on in the journey; what did God teach you about Himself through this process? Feel free to share words of encouragement with everyone ~ your words may just be what someone needs to read. We're in this together!

What Does Your "Busyometer" Read?

"And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.Acts 2:42 (KJV)Life can get very busy and the speed at which we function can quickly accelerate to one where we feel we have completely lost control.  We need to slam on the brakes!  How do we stop the proverbial hamster wheel and come up for air?

Recognize the Posted Speed Limit. We must recognize the speed to which we have been called.  And yes, there are times in our lives when the speed seems incredibly fast and we cannot slow down; the truth is, some seasons in life are like that.  However, there are other times in our lives when we must eliminate those activities that were not put upon us by God, but rather our own doing for myriad reasons.



Adjust Your Speed. Once we realize who we are and what God is calling us to do, we are then required to adjust our speed.  Look at what the multitudes did upon hearing Peter speak: 1) they gave their lives to Christ…

Tired of the TO DO Lists?

The Great Grind: If you're anything like me, your life is filled to overflowing with the necessities and then some!  I'm sure you have a life filled with the daily grind of shopping, cooking, cleaning, working, going to the Doctor, going to the bank, running to the pharmacy, taking care of the sick pet, thinking of meals for the upcoming week, taking care of the children, and if you home school your children - lesson planning, grading, teaching, gathering material and then there's paying the bills, cutting coupons to save money, and oh yes, the beloved laundry!  And the defining moment when you realize you do not have any clean underwear for the next morning...ugh.

Part 2 ~ Miracles: Impossible?

And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name Him Jesus.  Luke 1:31 Miracles: Impossible? Remembering David Hume's definition of a miracle from the last post: "[a] violation of the laws of nature; and because firm and unalterable experience has established these laws, the case against a miracle is--just because it is a miracle--as complete as any argument from experience can possibly be imagined to be." 1 If we take a look at Hume's definition of miracle, at first glance, it would seem as if he is declaring miracles to be an impossibility because they cannot violate the laws of nature. Is this really what Hume is attempting to argue? Hume taught "that what we call the laws of nature are simply an account of what has happened up to the present plus a belief that the future will continue to be like the past."2 According to Hume, we observe what has happened and we believe, or shall we say, take a step of faith to believe that wha…
