Who do you trust?
I have to be honest here. My brain is tired. Admittedly, most of me is usually tired, but on the whole, my daily routine does not require a lot of deep thinking. It is rushed, it is hectic, it is lovely, but it does not require or provide a lot of rigorous mental stimulation. This last week has been different. If you missed all the hubbub, my little 50 view per post blog, jumped up to over 1200 with a little post, apparently controversial, about the Ken Ham/ Bill Nye debate. Wednesday and Thursday was filled with discussing, debating and defending. Then Friday and Saturday consisted of ingesting and inspecting information at a Creation Experience conference.
Pumping adrenaline on and off throughout most of this week has my mind, spirit, and body a bit more worn out than usual. I have been reading Psalm 31 for a few days now, and I am finally sitting down to process it through my fingertips to the keyboard. Reading the Bible to me, means looking for the Character of God and allowing it to shape me. When I look at this passage, this is what I see:
In You, O Lord, I put my trust;
For You are my rock and my fortress;
Therefore, for Your name’s sake,
Lead me and guide me.
But I trust in the Lord.
But as for me, I trust in You, O Lord;
I say, “You are my God.”
My times are in Your hand;
Oh, how great is Your goodness,
Which You have laid up for those who fear You,
Which You have prepared for those who trust in You
In the presence of the sons of men!
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart,
All you who hope in the Lord.
God is trustworthy. I trust Him. But in a world with so much noise, so much distraction, sometimes it becomes a choice, more than a reflex. Yet, I don’t choose to trust with ignorance. I choose to trust because I have been here before. And I have seen His hand. I have felt His heart. I have heard His voice. And I say with Job:
But now my eye sees You;
