I'll Trust You Lord by Donnie McClurkin

I know that faith is easy when everything is going well
But can you still believe in Me when your life's a living hell?
And when all the things around you seem to quickly fade away
There's just one thing I really want to know

Will you let go? (I'll trust you, Lord)
Will you stand on My word? (I'll trust you, Lord)
Against all odds will you believe what I have said? (I'll trust You, Lord)
What seems impossible ... (I'll trust You, Lord)
Will you believe? (I'll trust You, Lord)
Every promise that I made will you receive? (Yes, I will trust You, Lord)

I know how bad it hurt you when that loved one's life came to an end
And when they had to leave you, you said you'd never love again
But will you trust that I can help you and I'll never turn away?
Will you trust Me, child, no matter, come what may?

What if it hurts? (I'll trust You, Lord)
What if you cry? (I'll trust You, Lord)
What if it doesn't work out the first time that you try? (I'll trust You, Lord)
What if you call My name ... (I'll trust You, Lord)
And you don't feel Me near? (I'll trust You, Lord)
Will you believe in Me or will you fear? Oh, my child?
(Yes, I will trust, You Lord)

Trust, a very important attribute that so many of us do not possess. Whether it’s your trustworthiness…..Are you dependable? Are you reliable? Can persons rely on you to honour and cherish personal and relationship commitments? Do you honour issues brought to you in confidence by your loved ones and friends or do you gossip them away?

OR…. Are you one of those persons that doesn’t trust anyone? Do you rely in yourself and confide in no one? Do you have an “I don’t need anyone” attitude?

Proverbs 3:4-6

4So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.
5Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

One thing that I’ve learned over the years is that no mater how old you are, no matter how rough and tough you think you are, everybody needs somebody. Everyday will not be “a bed of roses” and each day will not be Foldgers commercial. That’s just a simple fact of life. The Bible gives us a clear understanding of the ultimate person that embodies the word trust, God. So many times we try to solve all the problems of the world on our own and forget to consult the source of our direction and pathway. And only when we find ourselves on these wrong paths or rough patches, we “remember God”. Our trust should remain solely in Him each and everyday. Not only the days when we need something or feel hopeless. Our trust should also be in Him on those “the sun is shining so brightly, the birds are chirping, everyone’s happy, 7Up” days.

Today, reaffirm your trust in the best that will ever be, God and always remember to remain thankful for the simplest things in life!

Have a blessed, safe and prosperous week…live, learn and love……
