As Christians, we talk a lot about trusting God. We get on our knees or perhaps even fall on our faces before the Lord and tell Him that we will go anywhere and do anything for Him. We will follow Him every step of the way... no matter what! Then... the unexpected happens.
You lose your job, your spouse leaves, your house goes into foreclosure, your child dies or perhaps you get cancer. Regardless of what it is, you suddenly find your life spinning out of control and you find yourself in a place you never expected to be.
It wasn't supposed to be like this! You are following Christ! You are supposed to live happily ever after right? Right, only we forget we're not at the end of our earthly story yet and until we are, we are going to have all sorts of ... "adventures".
It is easy to trust God when all the bills are paid, when your marriage and other relationships are good and when you and all your loved ones have their health. It is easy to trust God when you've got your dream job, you got a raise or everyone is giving you a pat on the back.
What if God doesn't answer your prayers the way you think He should? What if you get laid off? What if you lose your home? What if you lose your spouse? What if you lose your health? Will you still trust Him or will you follow the advice of Job's friends to curse God and die?
May we learn to trust God... no matter what!

'May we learn to trust God... no matter what!'
Trust and obey for there's no other way.. Well, there isn't any other way that is going to work. May I learn to trust God more and more as each day passes.
