from Ruthless Trust by Brennan Manning
Craving clarity, we attempt to eliminate the risk of trusting God. Fear of the unknown path stretching ahead of us destroys childlike trust in the Father's active goodness and unrestricted love . . . faith is less a matter of believing in the existence of God than a practical trust in his loving care under WHATEVER pressure (emphasis mine). The stakes here are enormous, for I have not said in my heart, "God exists," until I have said, "I trust you."
from Her Brain by Mrs. Teten
Here is where I am struggling, wrestling and slowly calming down to rest in the hand of God, trusting in His plans for me. Trust, I am learning to trust God in this season of life more than I ever have before. And I am thankful for it.
