I was praying about something the other night and noticed something really interesting. As I was communicating my heart and thoughts to God, I noticed a phrase that I was repeating in my silent prayer. I kept saying how God “I trust you with this.” And how “I need you to show up in this.” As I got done praying something hit me. Why was I saying “this”? Why not everything? Why not it all? Why was I leaning into Him on this issue and in this moment?
I quickly was convicted about how many times I must be guilty of this. I was reminded of an incredible truth. I should trust God with all of it, all the time. Not only should I, but why wouldn’t I want to. God is so good. So capable. So gracious. He is truly the only one worth fully trusting with anything and any moment. I don’t want to be a person who only runs to God and asks or gives or credits Him with this or that, I want to engage Him in it all. Not only do I want to, I need to.
