Can God be trusted with my future? Haven’t we all found ourselves asking this question in some format or another?
If you have grown up in church like me, perhaps you would never phrase the question in that way. But each time we struggle with letting go of our agendas to follow Christ, we are asking can I trust God to lead me along the right paths. Can I trust that God’s plan includes things that I enjoy?
The battle to surrender fully to Christ is one that wages continuously for me. Life looks nothing like I expected at this age. And despite all that I have been taught I still want to hold onto the reigns to ensure things will turn out favorably for me.
Yet control is just an illusion. But trust is a choice, not just a one-time decision of saying yes to God but a series of daily and moment by moment choices.
What will you choose? What will I choose?
I was drawn to the opportunity to read Giving God Your Future, a Women of Faith Bible study because it’s in the daily choosing that I can get stuck. And, right from the beginning
of Thelma Well’s foreword I found a travel companion that knows what it’s like to love God but struggle in the letting go. She admits to saying “Girl, I can’t give everything to God. I don’t know what He would want me to do. He might want to send me to Africa, and I don’t like flies.”
Yep she wondered just like us at times, if God will send us along a path that includes things we don’t like.
As I’m working my way through the Giving God Your Future study, I like that the study really focuses on you picking up your own Bible and digging out truth. Although each section begins with a practical example from a woman’s life, the bulk of the study focuses on you reading God’s Word and discovering what Scripture says about surrendering to Him.
