joy as i trust

romans 15:13

may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

are you filled with more joy as you trust Him more?

i am.

the more i trust, the less i worry. the more i trust, the more i take time to look around to see god, which overflows into inexpressible joy at knowing him intimately.

the more i trust, the more i die to myself. i set my mind on things above, not on the things that are on earth. for i have died and my life is hidden with christ in god.

now, it’s just the trusting part that i’m working on today. trusting with everything from summer plans to getting through the day to speaking life.

  1. What a great verse! God has been prompting me to trust Him more and just in the last couple weeks I’ve seen Him come through for us in unexpected ways. He really is bigger than anything I’m worried about.

    • Totally! It’s just remembering that for me!! Thanks for sharing..it’s always encouraging to hear about how God is showing up BIG 🙂
