Today’s Five Minute prompt: Trust

I’ve never, not once, believed that my life would be trouble free. That I wouldn’t feel sorrow walk by and brush up against me. Maybe it’s the pessimist in me, but I do believe that I spend too much time worrying about the bad things that might happen, instead of rejoicing in the good one’s that do.

Most people find it hard to trust God when things go wrong, but sometimes I find it harder to trust Him when all is right. I force myself to look for beauty, to see it in the small things. It’s there in the big ones, the obvious ones, like family and friends and security. But, I need it to be there in the little ones too. Because when I see beauty, it proves to me that even if the big things fail or if sorrow knocks on my door, I can still trust that God has given me something beautiful.

Even if I have to squint to see it.

I think of Solomon, the lily, the sparrow, and I know that these things are small, but God has taken such care. And He takes such care with me, in sorrow and in beauty.

Thanks, Lisa-Jo, for five minutes and for reminding me to look for ways to trust Him more.
