Waiting, Trusting, Hoping

Jesus Calling


You know that Sarah Young’s Jesus Calling is part of my daily regimen for spiritual health.  Today’s selection is timely, appropriate, and on-point with where many of our men are at currently.  In case you have not yet read it, here you go:

WAITING, TRUSTING, and HOPING are intricately connected, like golden strands interwoven to form a strong chain.  Trusting is the central strand, because it is the response from My children that I desire the most.  Waiting and hoping embellish the central strand and strengthen the chain that connects you to Me.  Waiting for Me to work, with your eyes on Me, is evidence that you really do trust Me.  If you mouth the words “I trust You” while anxiously trying to make things go your way, your words ring hollow.  Hoping is future-directed, connecting you to your inheritance in heaven.  However, the benefits of hope fall fully on you in the present.

Because you are Mine, you don’t just pass time in your waiting.  You can wait expectantly, in hopeful trust.  Keep your “antennae” out to pick up even the faintest glimmer of My Presence.

By God’s grace and assistance, make it a great rest of today … plus week!
