He Still Trusts Me?

"I know God will not give me anything i can't handle. I just wish He didn't trust me so much." ~ Mother Teresa

Have you ever felt this way? I know I have. Somedays it seems that if it could go wrong it does, and if it hasn't will. You go through the day, you look up and say, "God...I don't get it. What's the deal here??"

I am finding that with every day, comes a different task and a test that I have choice in how I respond. I can either choose to let it overwhelm me, or I can choose to allow it to motivate me to continue to trust, to continue to develop my weaknessess in His strengths.

The fact is, He does trust me. He trusts trust Him. In Christ alone I have what I need to live in a way that is honoring to Him. And as I live in honor of Him, I begin to see the blessings of everyday life, and those blessings begin to outnumber the obstacles in my days. I begin to feel a strength that I had forgotten existed. I am strong in Him. I am more than a conqeror through Him. I can do all things through He strengthens me!

"Consider it pure joy when you faced with trials of many kinds, for it is the testing of your faith that develops perseverance. And perseverance must finish its course, so that you may be mature and lack no good thing" (James 1:2-4)
