Quotes like these have filled my soul with so much joy and wonder lately:

"Faith is deliberate confidence in the character of God whose ways you may
not understand at the time."
-Oswald Chambers

"The Son reflects God's own glory, and everything about Him represents God
exactly. He sustains the universe by the mighty power of His
command. After He died to cleanse us from the stain of sin, He sat
down in the place of honor at the right hand of the majestic God of
-Hebrews 1:3

Lately I have been filled with the wonder and mystery of Christ. He is so immeasurable and incomprehensible, it amazes me! He has really been teaching my heart about trust. Trust that He is sovereign. Trust that His plan is good. Trust that He works for my good and His glory. Trust that He holds everything together. Trust in Him and Him alone. Trust is a hard thing to grasp. The basis of trust has to be faith. We must remember that God is faithful at all times and so worthy for us to put our faith in Him. As the quote said above: Faith is deliberate. Faith is something we have to work at, being conscious on our every move. I believe that trust is the same way. We really have to work at trusting that God is sovereign and can take care of every aspect of our lives. It's tough, but so rewarding. With faith and trust in God, there is no room for worry or uneasiness. When are hearts begin to fill uneasy or our minds begin to worry, we are doubting the sovereignty of Christ. We are doubting that He is above all things and has planned out every instance. I am so guilty of doing those things, but He is really working my heart in that place. He is helping me to realize that worry and uneasiness is a sin and completely selfish. He is making me see how self demanding I am, instead of self sacrificing. What a humbling place to be. I must surrender my all to Him, because He knows me better than I know myself. He is trustworthy. He is sovereign. Something that a good friend reminded me of is that God is SEATED! He is seated on His throne in heaven. How wonderful!

"For the Lord God is our light and protector. He gives us grace and glory. No good thing will the Lord withhold from those who do what is right. O Lord Almighty, happy are those who trust in
-Psalm 84:11-12
