Vital signs- Monday,June 1st, 2020



I used to tell my friends who struggled waiting to “Trust.”


It’s easy to dispense advice when you can see clearly where you are headed. But now I know that in the thick gray fog of waiting, it is hard enough to simply keep moving forward, to walk directly into what you can’t see.


And it’s impossible to muster up this abstract thing called trust.


Now, I know that the thing to do is to turn right around and look backwards for a time. See what He has done.


Count the stone piles, the monuments to His miracles. Remember the steep uphill and the muscle strength it built, the awe-inspiring views it gave. And if He has been faithful for my lifetime, and many generations of lifetimes before me, won’t He certainly remain constant now?


Today, the sun rises and sets. Tomorrow, it will be the same. I trust this because it happens everyday. So it is with our God-- I wait, and He answers when the time is right.


Not all things are easy, but He uses all things for ultimate good. And because He is faithful, I know that I will be okay. No matter what happens when this fog clears.


“For the word of the Lord is upright, and all his work is done in faithfulness. He loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of the steadfast love of the Lord. By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, and by the breath of his mouth all their host.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭33:4-6‬ ‭ESV‬‬
