Pain 2 Purpose: Part V ”Trusting Ourselves to Trust God”

”Disappointment has a home in those who only trust themselves. Pride & Arrogance cannot dwell in the same place as the Goodness & Grace of God.” – #ToddCPittman

Yep, I Said It!

…and so did Jeremiah 17:7 (NIV) But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him.

“One of the most powerful tools to turn around the pain brought on by life’s disappointments is to trust the Lord with all our heart. We might feel like our body will never heal from sickness, we will never stop replaying a tragedy that happened right before our eyes, we will never mend from a broken relationship or divorce, or the pain from a disrespectful friend or family member will never subside. Regardless of the source of our pain, the more we study, understand, believe and trust in God’s promises then the stronger we become to resist being taken out the game by the pain suffered from our circumstances, the things we see, the feelings we develop, or that emotional rollercoaster we all ride now and then. We’ve got to trust ourselves to trust God! We’ve got to trust ourselves to embrace two important gifts He has for us. I’m talking about the gifts of grace and faith. If that pain won’t go away doing things our way, let’s try living by faith and not by sight. Let’s work on allowing ourselves not to blame God when things don’t go our way, but instead to trust Him to bring into existence things we cannot see.” – #ToddCPittman
