WAW: "Trust in the Lord"

Hi sweet blog readers.

How is you new year so far?

I want to wish all of you a very blessed and joyful 2013!  That your relationship with God will be better and stronger and that you trust in Him completely.

That's also the scripture for this weeks WAW challenge.



And this is so true (of course it is, because God said it, and what He says is true). When you put your trust in men, you will some how get disappointed  We so often expect things from someone, who isn't able to accomplish those expectations. How often do we not (!) say to others what we want of them. So it's only logical that we get disappointed  because the other person cannot read your mind. And then, think of the things you expect; are those reasonable? 

So, how much better is it to trust in God? It's 100% better, but I can also hear you think: 'but it is so hard!"
Yes, dear, it is hard. And I find it hard too. I ain't no saint either.  But when you get closer to God, and deepen you relationship with Him, you'll notice that you don't need to put your confidence in men. God provides you whatever you need. And trust in His timing too. We think we know best what en when we need things ;)  But when we don't get what we want, right  here and right now, we can also be disappointed in God. But then think again. Do you really need the things you wanted? Or is it just a material thing? Like:  'I need a car', 'I need new golf clubs', I need..... fill in the blanks. Those are things which satisfy us for a moment. But when you TRUST God in all the aspects of your life, most of the times the longing for material things will fade. And of course God wants the best for you, so when you really need a car, you will get one. But I think what God means, is that you need to trust Him in all. And most of all in you emotional en spiritual life. And don't get me wrong. Wanting material things is not bad. But it can get in your way with your relationship with God. If we put material things before God.... then your focus is on the world. Those things won't last an eternity. If you get what I mean :-D  

Well, enough preaching for today  LOL.

Here is my art journal. Art journal, you say? Yes, I made an art journal page this week. I really felt like painting again. So away with the tags for now, and on with my art journal.

Wendy,
It is a highlight of my week just to listen to you but listening and watching is almost more than I can comprehend. You are so talented, and giving God the Glory and honoring Him with it blesses my heart. You know what? I am going to start an art journal. I bought some paint and brushes today but I think I might need special paper.
Carole Robb Bisson.
The Blessing of the LORD Be Upon You!
