Trust: A Heart Issue

I am still on this journey of trust. I am finding that there are areas in my life that need work. 
This week I realized that trust is a heart issue. I can say that I trust God all I want, but my actions have to show it.  

trust, trust God, heart issue

This is the verse that has really gotten my attention this week. My troubled heart is a sign of me not trusting Him. Wait, what!? This means that all those times when I am stressing out and worrying about something, no matter how big or small, I am not trusting God. 

I want this journey to be an easy one. I want to just say that I trust Him and that be enough. That is clearly not the case. Trust is something learned. It takes time and life experience. (UGH!) This means that trusting God is a life journey. It's something that I am going to learn to live out one day at a time!

Clearly, this is not an easy challenge. I knew that there would be moments where I failed to trust. 
The important part is not the failure, but the getting back up, dusting myself off, and continuing on this journey. 

What better way to learn trust than through an Almighty Father Who is perfect. He will never make me regret putting my trust in Him. There may still be times that I question Him, but I can rest assured that He knows what is best for me. He is working all things out for my good (Rom. 8:28). There is no better place to put my trust than in Him.
