Trust - by Ellie

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him.” Jeremiah 17:7

“But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation.” Psalm 13:5

 Recently, I’ve been learning to trust God. I’ve been struggling with the idea of releasing my writing to people, even to my family. I tend to internalize things, so the idea of my writing going public is scary. I worry that no one will like it, or worse, ridicule it. I am terrified at the idea. I feel like I can’t open up, or show my true colors to people in person, so, since writing is my release, where I just pour out my feelings, I struggle with sharing my work. I’ve been working on just trying to trust God, knowing even if I get criticism, or negative feedback, I poured myself out, into every word, just releasing my heart, baring my soul, and sharing my passion. Through this process of releasing my work, I’ve learned to trust God. He’s always there for me and will never let me fall too hard, or for too long. He will lift me up and carry me through. He won’t send me any trial I can’t overcome. He only has my best interest at heart. He wraps His arms around me, holding me up, even when the flood waters rise, and the storm rages. I know I can trust God because of His incredible, unfailing love. I can trust Him because I know His promises, and can hold them close, as an anchor in my storms. He promises to be with me wherever I go, and has a beautiful plan for my life. All of this is true for you as well. What will you do with it? Where will you go?
