I decided a long time ago that I agreed with Fanny Crosby, the composer of hymns who penned these words:

'Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to take Him at His word;
Just to rest upon His promise;
Just to know, "Thus saith the Lord."

Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
How I've proved Him o'er and o'er.
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
Oh, for grace to trust Him more.

Trusting Him brings joy and peace. Not only because He comes through in the end, but also because you can release all concerns in the meantime. We don't have to wait until the end has arrived. We can just rest right now when we learn to trust in Him. It is a wonderful way to live life. Worry-free. Isn't that what all these doctors and specialists are recommending? People try medications, exercise regimens, spas, yoga and meditations - all kinds of things - in attempts to find stress-free living. I recommend trusting Him. Resting in His promise. Warding off the lies of Satan by taking Him at His word. That is stress-free living at its best.

Oh, for grace to trust Him more.

"Warding off the lies of Satan by taking Him at His word."
That is the battle at the moment. I feel as if I'm constantly going back and forth since moving. One moment I'm confident and trusting, the next full of doubt and worry. It's not exactly stress-free but I'm getting there. :)
