Learning To Trust God
Saturday, July 15 0 St. Bonaventure € Even all the hairs of your head are counted. So do not be afraid. Matthew 10:30-31
How easily I forget that Jesus' words are the ideal for which I am striving! I can improve in trust in God and in responsiveness to grace. When I look back on the past month or year, I do find some instances where I have responded to Jesus with courage. For them, I am grateful.
Matthew records that every hair of my head is counted, an image conveying how deeply God is concerned about every aspect of my well-being. Indeed, God is trustworthy-even to the point of dying for me.
Jesus, may I put my hand in your strong pierced hand with confidence that you understand fearfulness and still call me forward to walk with you.
