Trust in the Lord

Trusting in another source for guidance and strength and help can be a hard thing for the human race but giving things over to a reliable source of help can bring peace of mind and heart. Sometimes we think we know how things should be or how they should turn out a certain way but our answers and our conclussions aren't always the best outcome choices. Giving things over into God's hands is wisdom and courage and the serenity of our peace ( God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference). Here is a scripture from Jeremiah that guides us to that peace:

Hope and a Helping Hand

"Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is."

I've always found that when I try to take care of things or solve problems by myself, the end result is not completely resolved for the better. Even human nature shows that two is stronger than one and three is stronger than two.......and so on. But the encouraging and helping hand that rests on top of ours is so much better to lighten the load. I hope because I trust and that hope is complete when my shoulders no longer have to carry a burden of worry about what might happen today, tomorrow, or even the next minute. Isn't it logically known that a loaded down vessel has difficulty even advancing forward. But putting a significant portion of the vessel's load onto another can allow the freedom to move and go forward in a much easier manner.

As a human, I'm not physically able to carry certain weights so, I must ask for assistance to help pack a certain amount of weight to the relief of my physical body. In the same way, God bears my load and lets me be able to move and breathe and exist and get through my day. Being flesh and blood makes us candidates for adversities and testings and trials every day but when we give the load over to a much more capable weight bearer we can see hope for another day with peace.

      Great hub! I, too find strength in the Lord. My day starts out with reading His Word. I remember when it didn't and those days were always full of worrying and strife. Like you said, when God leads us, our lives are so much better!
