IN DESPERATE TIMES
All We Can Do Is Trust God

Let 
everyone see  
that you are  
unselfish 
and 
considerate  
in all you do.  

Philippians. 4:9
THEN YOU WILL BE SEEN AS ONE OF GOD'S PEOPLE.

Those Foolish (?)
Macedonians.

GIVING OUT OF THEIR POVERTY

 

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, 
but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is-- his good, pleasing and perfect will.
(NIV) Rom 12:2

Sometimes in a desperate situation I hear people say, all I can do is trust God, as though that is a bad place to be—having no recourse but to trust Him. 

   When you think of it, isn't that just where he wants us to be all the time.  In our foolishness we think we are able to handle day to day situations on our own.  

   It is the exceptional situations that drive us to the reality that, “without Him, we will not make it.” We need to bask in his Presence at all times.  Then our joy will be full.

   When hard times come, we will be better experienced in trusting Him.   Thank you Father for giving us the experience.
