TRUST - IT ALL WORKS FOR GOOD

On Fridays, I visit The Gypsy Mama's blog and participate in Five Minute Friday.  Here is how she explains it:
Around here we write for five minutes flat on Fridays.
We write because we want to, not because we have to. We write for fun, for joy, for discovery.
On Fridays we just write without worrying if it’s just right or not. Won’t you join us?
             

          1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
          2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
          3. Please visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them.
          OK, are you ready? Give me your best five minutes on:

          Trust…

          GO

          Maybe it's because I just celebrated an anniversary, but when I think of trust, I think of it in conjunction with marriage.  The greatest gift my spouse has given me is trust.  I trust him to always be thinking of me and to be faithful to me.  If you can't trust a spouse to be faithful, then there really is no marriage.

          I also think of trust in relation to my Savior.  I can trust Him to always have my best at heart.  I truly believe that He allows nothing to touch me that is not for my ultimate good.  I'm not being Pollyanna, I know that life is not always sunshine and roses.  But I trust there is a purpose for everything that comes my way, be it good or bad.


          In the end, it will all be good.

          Romans 8:28 - And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

          He said it, I believe it.

          And that says it all!


          STOP
