Trusting in the Lord

I have been reading a book by Beth Moore called, "A woman and her God." In one part of the book it talks about learning to trust in God in the different stages of life. So I looked up all the verses in the Bible that tells what God says about trusting in him. Proverbs 3:5 says, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding." All your heart, not half or a little bit!! And lean not on your own understanding! I have trouble with this. If I don't understand why something happened I try to rationalize it in my mind when I need to pray and wait. Proverbs 28:25, "The greedy stir up conflict, but those who trust in the lord will prosper." Isaiah 26:4, "Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord himself is the Rock eternal. Psalm 37:3, "Trust in the Lord and do good,; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture." Psalm 125:1, "Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever." Jeremiah 17:7, "But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him."
These are just a glimpse in what the Word says about trusting in him and its a lot. God is very adament about trusting in him and casting all your cares on him. So trust in the Lord your God and let him take care of the rest =) As women we are natural worriers and have a hard time leaning on anyone, but God wants to take care of us so we don't have to worry. Lean on him and trust him...he will be faithful to complete his work!
