Trust And... ??


If you've been reading Life with Lynnie (LwL) lately, you'll be aware that I've had to spend time at the hospital.  Mainly in the Emergency Room (ER).

In addition, you'll be aware that I had an ultrasound done.  It showed that I still had an ABSCESS, even though the surgeon thought she was cleaning it out, when she did surgery on me, Sunday, February 2nd.

This whole situation of dealing with my health problems for more than 17 months now, hasn't been easy.  Especially, since I've had an exorbitant amount of pain.

The severity of the pain changes.  However, there has not been a time when I have had no pain.

Even though I have suffered continuously, I realize that I must trust in God.  So, I do.

Thinking about trusting in God brought to my mind a hymn that I enjoy.

It was written by John H. Sammis, and is entitled, Trust and Obey.  Here's a link so you can listen and/or sing along:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDpqBEEY6as

Trust and Obey
(Please note:  there are actually more verses, but only these were used on the Youtube link.)

When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our way!
Let us do His good will, He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.

 
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay;
Not a grief or a loss, not a frown or a cross,
But is blessed if we trust and obey.


Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.


Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His feet,
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way;
What He says we will do, where He sends we will go;
Never fear, only trust and obey.


Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.


Yes, we must trust and obey.  Not just me.  You, also. 

Just as God told us to do, in Proverbs 3:5-6, "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."

Believe me when I say that I trust in the Lord. 

For everything.  The good.  The not so good.  And, even the horrible things that life can and in some cases has thrown at me.

I love and adore Him with all my heart.  And, do everything I can to be obedient to His calling.

In addition, I do not lean on my own understanding.  After all, I'm not God.  I only have human knowledge and understanding. 

He knows it all.  He's in control.  And, He provides for me and directs my path.  Always.

For this, I am truly thankful.  Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
