Week 2 Day 5 - Summer Bible Study

If you trust absolutely, you will always be receptive enough to the signals that life and God and yourself - your deep self - will be giving you . You will always be given the clue, the information, and the inspiration to carry you through.
Andrew Harvey

Emptying asks that we have a willingness to grow. It also asks that you trust God with your life. We will believe that God is for us and not against us. Trusting is the foundation of love.

Is God enough for us. Can we be satisfied with having Him and nothing else. We should want God to be enough and not go seeking things to take the place of this loving Presence in our lives.

Trusting God with our lives can be difficult because we often feel vulnerable. If your experience with others has been wounding, ask God to restore your confidence and let Him be enough for you today.

Scripture - Psalm 56
When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.
This I know, that God is for me.

Sometimes it's so hard to trust God with my life. When I'm lonely, frustrated, or hurting I think how good it would be just to have a human being be there to give me that strong 'bear' hug that I need. I do know that I'm never really alone. My God is right there all the time.

I think about how good it was to have my husband take care of the little everyday household problems. If my washer didn't work, he could fix it. If the furnace stopped, he could fix it. Now I'm alone with all these little trivials and I have to hire someone to fix it.

I do find that I go to God in prayer more and more each day. Lord help me to do the right things or speak the right words, or Lord just help me get through this day Because my children are grown and have homes of their own, I can't help them the way I once did, so now I pray for them each day. I pray to God about the little and big things and I glorify his name every chance I get.

May I wait with trust, with patience, knowing You will provide for me . I want for nothing, because You are there. You Lord, are my strong foundation. You are enough for me.
Today I will turn to God , trusting that I will be given guidance and strength.

'On Ya' - ma
