Trust with Blindness

A toddler standing on the kitchen table as her grandfather stands next to her, making sure that she does not step off and get hurt. He slowly steps back and then tells her to jump into his arms. For this little one, those couple of feet between the table and the hands that are ready to catch her must seem like a canyon. “If Grandpa doesn’t catch me I am heading straight down to the floor”, might be what she is thinking at this point. But without hesitation she raises her arms and jumps toward his awaiting arms when he says, ”Jump”.

As we go through life, is this the trust we put in our Lord? When we come to troubled times, when the canyons of life look too deep and too wide for us to handle, does our human blindness of God’s love get in the way of the trust we need to have in our Lord Jesus. Paul explains this trust and the depth that we should have God in our lives.

(Act 17:27-28) that they should seek God, and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us,
for “In him we live and move and have our being”

Our lives should be continuously and without end immersed in the Trust that no matter what happens, God is with us and with Him we are on the right path. We may not always see the end results, but that is not for us to know. With trust, the path we are on is the right path and that we are always in His care.

Hymn # 729, “I am trusting thee, Lord Jesus”, is one of my many favorite hymns. The whole song speaks so well of this topic but I will read verse number six to you here:

“I am trusting Thee, Lord Jesus; Never let me fall.
  I am trusting Thee forever And for all.”

Our relationship with our God is the key to everything! His Word which makes the connection with us is always present.
Our Father’s loving hands are there in front of us. He wants all to seek and find Him. May we all have the faith of a little child.

In God we trust and are blessed.
