Trust Is A Curious Thing

I am trying hard to trust God today! Wait a minute….can you really try hard to trust God? Isn’t that an oxymoron?

Honestly, I am not sure if it is or not, I’m just being open with you. I am trying hard to trust God today. There, I said it again!

I am finding myself anxious about my son’s doctor’s appointment tomorrow afternoon. I know a lot of people have deeper and more life-altering or threatening issues that you are dealing with, and I do respect that pretty deeply. Anyone who knows me would attest to that….I think.

I wouldn’t say I am a man of GREAT ( meaning “BIG”) faith, but at the same time, I don’t find myself struggling like I have the last couple of days with the tension of this doctor’s appointment. I know God is in control, and He knows what He is doing, and He won’t give me anything I can’t handle, etc., etc.

Can I just say, “I’m anxious; I appreciate your prayers for my son, Joshua, and his Mom and me”? Thanks!

    Hi Pastor Paul,
    I read your post and I can relate. It is so much easier I find to have faith in my circumstances when it involves everything else but my children. When I see my children in distress and pain it hurts me more than my own distress and pain. So anticipating that my child will have to go through something that I have no control over that I will be helpless to “Make Better” (that is a big part of parenting) gives me anxiety also. You, Josh, Colleen, and Jonathan are in my prayers. Your just being a Dad. Love in Christ Veronica Joy
