This is an old blog that I started in 2006. I keep it because it has a lot of historical data and people still come here. As of September 2016, no new updates will be made here. All new blog posts and writing/publishing related news will be posted over on my new site at www.jenniferhudsontaylor.net.

Word of Inspiration: Trust in the Lord

"Blessed is that man who makes the Lord his trust, and does not respect the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies." (Psalm 40:4)

It is so tempting to believe in the things we see, especially when our circumstances surround us like steep mountains on all sides and we feel trapped with no way out. We forget that God is our deliverer. No mountain or obstacle is too great for Him. The just walk by faith, not by sight. Trust in the Lord when you can't see over the walls, the mountains, and the obstacles surrounding you. Close your eyes to the bad images, your ears to the negative words of others, and call out to the Lord for deliverance, for He alone is able to save you from your troubles.

Great word...trust is something I have to practice to get it right. It doesnt come automatically - at least in the sense of our relationship with Him.
Blessings.

Jan,

I struggle with trust on a consistent basis. It and patience are the two hardest things for me.

Blessings,
