When You Don’t Understand…

I just don’t understand life sometimes.

I don’t realize what the Lord is doing.

In my humanness, I lack discernment and wisdom.

In all the noise, the anger, frustration, and questioning,

I hear this:


Do you trust me? 


Those 4 simple words constructed in the form of a question humble me every time.


Yes, Lord. Of course I do.


Then why do you doubt?

You can trust Me because I am who I am.
