I have faith in God. I’m old enough to recognize His steady hand in my life and the lives of my children. I hear the voice of God in His two great commandments; Love your God and do unto others and I’ve grown so comfortable with those guiding principles that I don’t worry about the rest. I have faith. What I don’t have is trust.
“The Promise Or, the Pros and Cons of Talking to God” is an important book for me. It spoke to me about my lack of trust. I didn’t really trust God, I didn’t trust my kids, and I certainly didn’t trust myself. I’ve raised my kids with a solid foundation and they’re great examples of faith filled, hard working, fun loving kids. I am one lucky mom. But I was still afraid that something or someone would come along and cause them irreparable harm. And I was afraid that if I didn’t work, day in and day out, to move forward in my youth organization and my business, it would all fall apart and I’d be surrounded by a sea of people disappointed in me.
Sean Paul Murphy talks about the gray area between the sovereignty of God and our own free will. That’s where I’ve made my home. Yes, I believe and have faith in God but I thought He needed every moment of my time and all my energy to keep it on track and make good things happen or at least keep the bad things away.
Trusting God and trusting God’s will in my life and the life of my kids is the hardest work I’ve ever done. I find myself knee-deep in old habits and the tension mounts. I have to stop and think of the last chapter of “The Promise Or, the Pros and Cons of Talking to God” and follow Sean’s example.
Live your faith by trusting God, trust God by letting it go.
My days have peaceful moments and I’m growing toward peaceful days. The more room I have for peace, the more room I have for happiness. Not happiness based on how much I got done today. Happiness based on a sense of gratitude for three great kids, a wonderful organization and a growing business. It’s peace built on knowing I’m doing my best and with God’s help, its going to be enough
