The Blessings of Trust

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Romans 15:13

We are commanded to trust Him. The blessings of this trust are hope, joy, and peace. Who could ask for more? And we know His promises are true. Irrevocable. Never failing.

I can testify to this. In recent difficult situations, I have been praying, but releasing to Him. Praying that HIS will be done. And when that is our prayer, even if we have to keep turning it over to Him, the best possible outcome is reached, He blesses us abundantly, we grow in Him.

He said to me, "Trust Me." He wants me to pass His message on to you.

Have a beautiful, blessed, hope/joy/peace filled day!


I am joining with Charlotte and Ginger today for Spiritual Sundays, and The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays!

Your pictures are beautiful, and your words are their equal. We just finished a study about trusting GOD's Will in your prayers. I keep reminding myself of something that I read from one of those great old men of the faith (Can't remember which one...)

Seek at the very beginning to have no will of your own and empty the burden out to God for His will to be done. To be honest, it isn't always easy for me, but I'm learning that not so simple thing called trust.

So very true and I can also testify to this. I was dealing with a very unpleasant situation with my neighbour and her very noisy dogs. She had about 14 of them. After a very long battle and feeling I was getting nowhere I just gave up and prayed to God to help me or help me put up with it. Not long after that things started to happen and now they are gone.. apparently she only has 3 now which I hardly hear at all. So yes I do put my trust in him 100%. take care, Maryann

Hi Carol,
A wonderful message, thanks. You are so right, we can trust Him, and I am truly grateful to know that, I walk around with that knowledge in my heart every day. We are truly blessed to know Jesus.
Hugs, Cindy

What a beautiful gift to pass along. I have been in the same boat and giving again back to Jesus to take care of. It's usually a daily conversation with God, but one I'm grateful to have. Amazing that His plans are always so much bigger than mine. What an awesome Savior we have to trust in!

P.S. I absolutely adore you miss Carol! Your comments on my blog are especially dear to me. You always know just what to say. Thank you friend!! :)

Have a wonderful weekend!
