Simply Trust


Seems simple enough. But it's hard pressing though the doubt and pain. It's difficult, at best, when you're trusting God to show up, but He's conveniently disappeared. What we fail to realize is that it's "at the end" of us, where God "begins." It's in our helpless surrender, our humble worship, and our failing faith, that God pierces the darkness with Light. Last night, as I continued to surrender, the words of archbishop Francois Fenelon cut through my heart and connected me with God's . . . I hope his words will do the same for you today:

Simply trust everything into the hands of God,
be humble, and open up to His grace.
Through meditation and prayer,
you will receive peace,
and everything will gradually be worked out for you.
And the things which, in your hour of temptation,
seemed so difficult
will disappear almost imperceptibly.

Hi Cherie,

It is so difficult at times, but sometimes it takes risking it all, and removing all obstacles that "shut" Him out. We must let God mold and shape every area of our life as we surrender to Him. :)

Blessings and faithful trust in Him, :)

Wow, Cherie! I am sending you a cyber hug for your continued words of encouragement & hope that God knows I need to keep going right now! By being God's vessel, you continue to give me the EXACT words I need to hear at the EXACT moment!! I honestly keep asking myself how on earth is this all going to be fixed? You lifted me up by saying, "everything will gradually be worked out for you" I am claiming those words in the name of Jesus!! Thank you Cherie :)
