Another day of smiling when I feel like crying goes by without our Zack.
Another day of putting one foot in front of the other goes by without our Zack.
Another day of watching a little brother miss a big brother and live with his own fears.
Another day of trusting God without our Zack.
And sometimes trusting God tastes a little like fear…
But when I am afraid, I will put my trust in you. Psalm 56:3
Trusting doesn’t mean we will get what we want.
Or even what we think we need.
I wish it did.
But isn’t trust the very basis of faith and that faith leads to God?
The truth is that I cannot boast of my faith in God, I can only boast of HIS faith in me.
Faith in me. Faith in you.
And he is worthy of my trust, all the time, in every situation and through every outcome.
In you, Lord my God, I put my trust.~Psalm 25:1
And we may think we trust God…
But when our circumstances come crashing down on us, it is only then that we become truly aware of our level of faith in HIM but more importantly – HIS faith in us.
If you are struggling to trust God, I encourage you to meditate on God’s love for you. John 3:16
It is out of His love for you and for me, that we can trust Him at all times. He is a faithful father and everything I need, we need, on this day.
This day where I passed out candy to many of Zack’s friends. And I smiled and cried…
A little girl and her father were crossing a bridge.
The father was kind of scared so he asked his little daughter:
“Sweetheart, please hold my hand so that you don’t fall into the river.” The little girl said:
“No, Dad. You hold my hand.”
“What’s the difference?” Asked the puzzled father.
“There’s a big difference,” replied the little girl.
“If I hold your hand and something happens to me, chances are that I may let your hand go. But if you hold my hand, I know for sure that no matter what happens, you will never let my hand go.”
I am so thankful HE holds my hand…
May God’s grace and peace lead you as you put ALL your trust in Him.
We miss and remember Zack and find joy in today a moment at a time…
