Blogtober Day 12 // Trust in Him & Be Found

Monday, October 12, 2015

Hola, readers! Remember that surprise I was talking about? Well here it is: a guest post from the one and only Madilyn Davis, my best friend and fellow blogger! Madilyn always encourages me to run to God and trust in Him, because, believe me, I have major trust issues. And today she wants to encourage y'all to do the same thing. I'll link her social accounts below; feel free to give her a follow there!

Trust is the solid foundation of any relationship a person has with someone else, but when that trust is broken, so is the relationship with that person and the relationship will never be the same again.  Well, it’s different when it comes to God.  In fact, it is one hundred percent positive He will never lead you astray and break His promises.  We are only humans, and we all need God every living day.  All we do is sin, and we need the One who died for our sins to save us from our sins, and when we let Him do just that, it is a huge leap of faith we take.  We are trusting in God with our lives.  

“Have I not commanded you?  Be strong and courageous.  Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

God will never leave you, and that is a promise you can trust.  He will be there for you through everything, good and bad times, and He will get you through those times if you trust the fact that He can get you through rough waters so you can live for Him.  Life isn’t easy, y’all, but God is always good.  Just like the verse said in Joshua, “Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged”, God will comfort you and He will guide you – if you trust Him.  Without your trust in God, your plans God has lain out for you would be hopeless; my plans would be hopeless if I wasn’t trusting in God with my all.  This world is fading away from God’s commands, which is one of the saddest things to think about.  Do you have any idea why?  Society isn’t trusting God.  They aren’t putting God before themselves, and they’re letting themselves become lost in the world’s ways.  This is why it is so incredibly important to trust God with your life, because when your soul is in God’s hands, it is in the safest place it could possibly be.

“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.” Proverbs 3:5-6 
“Trust in God” is all I can tell you to do and it is up to you whether or not you commit to Him and let Him guide you.  Yesterday I had the experience of a lifetime and was able to ride in a hot air balloon.  The view was beautiful, but I’m petrified of heights and was miserably claustrophobic and would have not been able to do what I did without trusting that God would keep my family and me safe on the ride.   I run into situations every day when I have to trust in the Lord, and it is a wonderful feeling knowing that the One who forgave me for my sins has my back through everything – big and small, hard and easy.  Know one thing – God loves you, even when you betray Him.  He keeps His Word, even when you don’t keep yours.  That’s an amazing type of love and security our Savior gives us and I wouldn’t trade it for a thing in the world.

Wasn't that just great?! Like I said before, y'all should go check out her personal blog, and her social media is linked below:
