Trusting God is so hard sometimes; especially when we can’t see the next step. I think the biggest area I’m learning to trust God in is relationships. For a long time, I hid this area from God as if He couldn’t see it. I thought, “You know what God I got this!” But actually, He knew more than me. Duh! He can see down the line when that person is going to stop replying to texts or when they’re going to move onto someone else long before we even know what’s going on.
I’ve learned when we trust God, He protects us from so much heartache. When we stick with Him and keep Him involved in our relationships, He reveals so much to us and saves us so much time. Now don’t get me wrong, there have been a few times when I could feel the Spirit telling me someone wasn’t right for me, but I proceeded anyway. But God is so good when it’s all over, He doesn’t say “I told you so.” He welcomes us back into a close relationship with Him.
So I guess I’ve realized that when my relationship with God is healthy so are my other relationships. As long as I keep God first, He’ll guide me in the right direction. I’m doing my best to follow Proverbs 4:23 which says, “Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring for life.”
***wellspring= a source or supply of anything, especially when considered inexhaustible.
So if our hearts are the source of our joy and happiness, let’s protect it.
Let’s trust God, I’m confident He’ll bring us the right person at just the right time.
