T – Trust in the Lord

Trust in the Lord with all your heart.  ~ Proverbs 3:5

你 要 专 心 仰 赖 耶 和 华 , 不 可 倚 靠 自 己 的 聪 明 ~ 箴 言 3:5

A proverb is a wise saying. The book of Proverbs in the Bible is written to help the people who read it to be wise, or to do things that will make their lives go well. Today’s verse is a proverb that tells us to trust in God with our whole hearts. In other words, to trust God completely, in everything we do and in everything that happens to us.

In the picture, the little girl’s dad has tossed her up in the air. You can’t see her face, but do you think she is screaming or laughing? I think she is laughing, because she knows that her dad is going to catch her when she comes back down. She trusts him with all of her heart.

When things happen in your life that seem out of control, and you feel like you are going to fall, remember that your Heavenly Father is right there with you. He knows all about what is happening, and even if it is really hard, he will catch you and not let you fall. Sometimes the hard problems hang around for a long time, but God will stay with you through all of them and hold you up.

Our Father, it is so good to know that you are here with me through everything that happens in my life. When I feel like I am falling, catch me in your strong hands and keep me safe. Show me that I can trust you more and more, until I do trust you completely, with my whole heart. Amen.
