To Whom Do You Turn?

   Posted by: Teacher Ruth   in News Updates

Hey friend. Just a quick note about some things I have been struggling with ~~ I hope it can be of some help to you. To know that others struggle with fear and trust ~ that God is in control ~ that you are not alone.

The things I battle most with are anxiety and fear. God is teaching me that fear has no place in the life of a Christian. It is a very hard thing to completely trust that things will turn out ~ I worry. I am GOOD at worrying. But God tells me to fear nothing because I am His child; I am in His hands and He is in complete control of EVERYTHING. Yes, everything. Even those things that I think He doesn’t see or might not care about. When our prayers feel desperate and like they might be falling on deaf ears, He hears and He listens. God is ultimate. He is greater than we will ever begin to comprehend. We, who can only see to the end of our noses and see what immediate hurdle is coming up, cannot begin to fathom a being who sees all events simultaneously and is in all places at all times with no beginning and no end. No matter how much we study or try to wrap our minds around this concept, we will only ever begin to scratch the surface of the depth and magnitude of our awesome Creator. When I realize that I am fearful and not trusting God, I stop and think about who God truly is, what He has already done, what He is doing, and what He has promised to do. In the face of the power of God, how can I fear for tomorrow?

I’ll have a regular update up next week. For now,

May God bless you and keep you.
