Do I Really Trust God?

Deb Goolsby

“He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God.  Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in Him.”  Psalm 40:3

I cried out to the Lord that I couldn’t handle a situation and I was begging for Him to just get me through the next couple of days.  As I conversed with God, I was reminded that if I really trusted Him, I shouldn’t do all the worrying.  He healed my broken heart and made me see the joy I so desperately wanted to feel.

Of course He did and He continues to do so.  I kept saying out loud that I trusted Him and my Heavenly Father was with me through the struggle and kept His arms around me.

“But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God’s unfailing love forever and ever.”  Psalm 52:8

God really taught me a lesson in trust and how by my not trusting Him with my situation, I was rejecting Him and His love. (Ouch!)  Therefore, I need to stop fretting, and release my anxiety.  I need to show the Lord that I really do trust Him.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.”  Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust and Obey

Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay;
Not a grief or a loss, not a frown or a cross,
But is blessed if we trust and obey.


Trust and obey, for there's no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
