Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. — Proverbs 3:5–6 NKJV
Sometimes, I have a meltdown, a pity party, a woe-is-me session. Fortunately, this doesn’t happen often, but when it does, it takes me a day or two to climb out of the ditch.
Last week, I said things like: “I trust God, but I just want…” “God has a plan for me, but why…” “I know God will take care of us, but what about…” If I say but, do I really trust Him? Do I really believe His plan is good and perfect? Do I really put my family’s care into His hands?Either I trust God or I don’t. Click To Tweet
Either I trust God or I don’t.
Either I believe His plan is good or I don’t.
Either I put my family’s care into His hands or I don’t.
What about you? Do you trust God, but…?
Join me in removing but from our vocabularies and say:
I trust Him.
His plan is good and perfect.
He will take care of my family.
Father, so often we add but when we talk about You. If this reader is struggling with this, please give her Your grace and strength to trust You more. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Two years later, she launched Hope for the Valley, a website of devotions and prayers for women with cancer. J.K. lives in Texas with her husband, dog, and four cats. When she’s not writing, she’s either studying her Bible, walking her dog, or vacuuming pet hair. Connect with her and the ministry of Hope for the Valley on Facebook, Twitter, or Google+.
