Trust & Obey


The past several weeks the Lord has been talking to me about Trust & Obeying. I am not sure why, maybe because of mama's current fight with cancer. I don't know. I believe I am trusting, and I certainly want to be obedient. Pray that I see what God wants to write on my heart.

I thought of this picture when I thought of trust. I put my grand daughter Sydney up on Amos' back. I believe it was the first time she had ever been on the back of a horse she trusted me. Even her dad and mom trusted me as I hoisted her up. She was relaxed and not scared - even though this was new. She didn't fight, she was obedient. How are you doing as God puts you into new situations? Trusting I hope.

I hope I am always trusting my Saviors will but sometimes a moment of fear can make us hesitate when it really shouldn't. As the song says, "Trust and obey, for there's no other way to be faithful in Jesus, but to trust and obey." I think that is right. My memory fails me at times!

Hugs to you Papa and Mama.

Michelle - What got my attention is that to obey, we must trust. If fear makes us hesitate, that is disobedience - my opinion! :o)

Parsley - thanks for the hugs!!

It's so easy to trust Him when things are going just the way we want them to. It's during those times when we can't see what's ahead that it's so hard to just lean on Him.

Peter - if you listen to the word's closely - there is "no other way."

Crossview - not only lean on Him, but to obey as well in the tough times.

LA - One of my favorite bloggers is Crossview - we know we can lean on Him, but we need to listen when we lean, trust and then obey.
