I have learned that I have a Choice. I have a significant Choice. Trust the Lord, our Sovereign Holy Almighty God. This choice brings me peace. Peace that cannot be explained because there are still a thousand questions and there are still troubling circumstances that need to be untangled.
In this journey of faith, what does faith look like? It looks like a choice to trust God. It's not a cliché—it's life! It is hope. It is faith. It is faith that trusts. If I don't make this choice, then what is the alternative? Trying to control circumstances I cannot control, worry, anxiety, anger, fear, and the list goes on.
What if I make two lists? The first list would be things I understand, things I can control, and things I can fix. The second list would be things I don't understand, things I can't control, and things I cannot fix. Which list would be longer? The longer list, obviously, is the list of things I cannot control, cannot fix, and cannot understand.
There is a third list I will make. Why do I choose my faith and choose my trust in God?
The answer is – my history with God, and all He's already done for me. He saved me. He loves me. He daily pours grace and mercy into my life. He's already worked in a thousand amazing ways in my life, and that has taught me Who He is and that I can trust Him. He has strengthened my faith in a life long journey, and He calls me to this faith with every unanswered question, with every situation that is out of my control. Faith is the answer to a thousand unanswered questions, and it happens in the choice to fully place our trust in the Lord.
