Trusting Jesus...No Matter What!

An old hymn is running though my mind this evening. I am listening to it right now as I write this blog. I had a different picture in mind for this blog but as I was looking for it, I came across this one and stopped in my tracks. You see, there are times when we feel like that little bird. We feel small, helpless and alone. The snow is piled up around us and a stiff, cold wind ruffles our feathers. There appears to be nothing to nourish us. The trees are bare and the ground is frozen solid. You would not think this little fellow would be able to survive through the harsh winter but he does. Why? Because God has equipped him to survive. Not only that but God cares about this little bird.

Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Luke 12:6 (NIV)

In those difficult and harsh moments, when our heart is breaking and we cry out, "Why, God?" we must cling to God and trust Him... no matter what! Is is always easy to do? No. It is not. Anyone who says it is has never been in a position where they have to truly trust God. True faith, true trust, is willing to trust God... no matter what!

Blessings!

It certainly isn't easy the first time ... or when the crisis is an enduring one. But, praise God, He helps us in our weakness to see (or remember) that the only way is Him :pray:

Interesting thoughts thank you, my son and I were just talking this evening about how God equipped our bodies to fight for survival in physical terms (a long story - he was asking if someone could die by falling asleep wearing a necklace). I think this will tie that little discussion nicely together with what we've been reading from Job. Faith is the number one survival mechanism we have! Without it, we'd be 'dead men walking'.

God bless you both!

PS a great hymn, we were singing this not too long ago and I had forgotten how nice it was - thank you!
