trust Me (Life Lesson #4)

this is apart of a set of pictures created of life lessons I've learned over the last year....

 

#4) I had been dealing with some issues personally that only a few people knew about. one of these people had dealt with a very similar problem, which had brought them closer to the Lord because they were forced to only rely on Him for the solution to the problem.... after we had talked for a little while, they had an encouraging idea for me:

 

"Write 'Trust Me' on a sticky note. put it on your desk where you can see it, or your ceiling above your bed or something, so that you're constantly visually reminded to trust the Father. seriously, I have 5 of those in my dorm at present

one on my ceiling, one on my desk, one on my door, one on my bathroom mirror, and one on the inside of my laptop. it's so annoying but I have the worst time trusting God, but I've gotten SO much better since I started doing that..."

 

so I did. I started keeping these notes on my wall, on my desk, and on my bedroom door. I even changed one of my passwords to "TrustMe" (it's no longer one of my passwords, so don't think I'm stupid enough to post my password for yall).

she was right. it is hard. I'm a doer. I have to be doing something to make things better at all times... but lately every time I try to stick my hands into the works, it only blows up in my face. I find myself so much better off completely trusting God to give me the answers and fix my problems.

I still very often try to do it on my own, but find myself being told by Him:

 

Trust Me.
