TRUST IN THE LORD

"Trust in Lord and do good (Ps 37:3)". What does it mean to trust? Trust, hope, and take risk- synonyms. We believe in many different things but we don't trust in everything. We don't put our hope in everything. When we get in the bus we do believe that the driver will take us to the right place. Actually we trust him our life. We have already an experiences, so its easy to trust in that. We really depend on this driver. To trust sometimes is a risk. You lose control that you had over yourself.

  • Our burdens - Psalm 55,22
  • Our souls - 1Peter 4,19
  • Our ways - Psalm 37,5

Lack of trust keeps us from receiving God blessings for us. Sometimes it is difficult to trust when facing new situations. It is difficult to continue trusting when nothing seems to happen.
