A Busy Life – Learning to Trust God

Dandelion

Well, as much as I love to learn and share what I’m learning, God has me in a place where the learning is obviously more important than the sharing!

Again I’m explaining why I’ve been absent from the blogging world!  Between family visits, summer trips, and family work projects, all keep me from sitting down long enough to gather my thoughts.

But….those thoughts are still there, just waiting to leap from my fingertips and onto this screen!  Thoughts on all the lessons in process like:  contentment, peace, obedience, trust, expectations, and more.  I’ll be sharing more as I find make the time to process and describe what God is revealing in my life.

From where I stand today, I know God is good.  Even through the hard times, He is at work, drawing us to Himself.  Revealing His ways, His desires for us.  We only need be still and listen.  Won’t you listen with me?

And here’s a beautiful song to draw you to God.  Listen and be healed.

 

“Fear Is Easy, Love Is Hard”
by: Jason Gray

Turn on the T.V. for the evening news
They got plenty to fear and nothing to do
Another somebody who’s gone too far
Makes you want to put up your guard
Fear is easy, love is hard
So we draw up another dividing line
We label each other and we choose a side
Peace could come at quite a cost
So we won’t build a bridge across
Fear is easy, but love is hard
Fear will leave you hiding in the dark
But love will bring a light into your heart
So do not be afraid, do not be afraidI’m sorry baby is what he should’ve said
But she wouldn’t listen even if he did
They’ll die without forgiveness soon
But no one wants to make a move
When fear is easy and love is hard
Fear will leave you hiding in the dark
But love will bring a light into your heart
So do not be afraid, do not be afraidIt’s hard to bring your heart to a world that can break it
To offer love to those you’re afraid will forsake it
But a well-defended heart is always looking for a fight
In a lonely war against an endless night
But love can bring a lightFear will leave you hiding in the dark
But love will bring a light into your heart
So do not be afraidIt comes down to a simple choice
Shouting devils or a still small voice
One is spreading fear and dread
Oh but love has always said
Do not be afraid

What has God been teaching you this summer?
