Roller Coasters, Photographs and Ponderings on Trust


I married a man I trusted. And it was a trust like no other. The only person that really learned to know me, to hear me out. The most closed, dark placed of my heart was made light to his ears. Every day, we wake up and go about our day intertwining our lives and our hearts. He trusts me with his heart, his reputation. I trust him for protection, for faithfulness, for being my best friend always, till death to us part.


And every day we wake up together, we choose to trust in our Heavenly Father. We take each adventure, one step at a time. When our emotions run away in a roller coaster fashion, we trust in His timing to give us that peace which surpasses all understanding. My life is built on trust, knowing that someday He will fulfill all promises.



While I may not always understand this life, or the confusion that often awaits each turn, I trust that all things will work together for Good. Trust is a beautiful, sometimes painful, challenging aspect of my every day life.

"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28

  5. Loved reading this (and great photos, too!). I have to remind myself of this very thing some days - it's not always about knowing what God's plan is for my life, but trusting Him to help me take the next step even though I may not be able to see it :-)

  6. Seems like you're going through something right now, but maybe it seems that way because I am? In any case, I loved your words here and wanted to give you some encouragement to hang on to the Lord's faithfulness. I'm hanging on, too. :)

  10. I sense some faith-at-work here! Trust is a truly an ongoing challenge, as is faith, for sure! Our loving Father knows us to our core and back. And there are challenges where we don't understand why we have to go through what we're going through (I *totally* understand!). We've never been forgotton. Our names are graven on the palms of His hands, and He can never forget us...just as a mother can never forget her own child. Whatever challenge you face, you've found the right place for strength and comfort!
