Trust is easy when I see the direction I’m headed. Trust is easy when I’m in “control.” Trust is easy when I like the path I’m on. Trust is easy when I see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Trust is hard when there isn’t a road map in sight and the GPS function on my phone breaks. Trust is hard when I didn’t seek to do what I’m called to do. Trust is hard when none of my questions have answers. Trust is hard. It just is.
But Jesus never said it would be easy.
Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life. (Psalm 143:8)
This is the background on my computer right now:
I usually run in the opposite direction when I see anything pop culture Christianized, but this is too perfect. Simple. To-the-point. TRUE. (And my sweet friend made it)
I know the people in my circles will greatly appreciate me keeping this reminder in front of me. Pretty sure the Keep Calm and Trust Jesus curtain does not need to be pulled back to reveal the crazy lady who’s dancing around in my head right now dying to make her Broadway debut this afternoon.
Joking aside, when I don’t have a road map and my GPS is broken, Keep Calm and Trust Jesus. When I didn’t seek to do what I’m called to do, Keep Calm and Trust Jesus. When none of my questions have answers, Keep Calm and Trust Jesus.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight. (Prov. 3:5-6)
On a total side note, I just want to call out the blog project I’ve been enjoying immensely with two very sweet friends of mine. There was a day I dreamed of solid, honest, raw, hysterical and hilarious friendships and this project just reminds me of how God truly does do exceedingly and abundantly more than we could ask or think. Perhaps I should remember that when I don’t want to Keep Calm and Trust Jesus ;-)
PS. If printing ‘Keep Calm and Trust Jesus’ and putting it in your pocket, saving it to your desktop, making it your profile pic on your social network of choice, saving it as the wallpaper on your phone, or any other option of having it in your personal space would bring a much needed reminder to you throughout the day, please do so.
