"All that I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen." - Emerson
When I look back on my life and the different trials I've faced, the issue of trust is one that surfaces time and time again. Do I trust that Christ was and is who He says He is, and do I trust that He will do all that He says He will do? Do I trust that He will step in and fill in those gaps where I fall short, and that He will catch me when I fall?
Yes, I do. I have seen too much and experienced too much to ever doubt it.
I have seen checks come in the mail just when we ran out of groceries and didn't think we had any way to get more. I have seen job offers come through right when we were at the end of our ropes. I have seen answers provided right in the nick of time. I have seen health recovered, optimism restored, and miracles happen. With all that I have seen, I would be truly blind indeed if I claimed I hadn't seen.
