Real Life with Pastor Steve
August 12, 2022
Trust in the Lord with all of your heart. Do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your path’s straight. ~ King Solomon
If you are like me, you wrestle at times with fully trusting people… anyone. You get let down enough, hurt enough, and you begin to be shrewdly suspicious of anyone… even God. That’s why these statements from Solomon are so mind-blowing, and challenging. To trust anyone, with all of our hearts… to trust God… with all of our hearts… seems to go against our experience. And yet, it is only in those moments when I have fully trusted God… when I have felt the most free, unburdened, joyful, and purposeful. My understanding gets in the way all too often. I want my circumstances to be straight, or for God to straighten them out. But as we trust Him, He makes our path through those circumstances straight… even though the circumstances themselves may not be. He gives us the way to live, and the strength to live in the midst of it.
Would you join us this Sunday for a special outdoor service at Torpy Park at 10:00, as we continue this theme… trust… as it starts by fully trusting the Lord. And that’s …real life. ~ Pastor Steve – Eaglebrook Church
