My wife and I have a large canvas (painted by a friend) in our home that sums up our family philosophy. We Trust God. We trust Him with our finances, our relationship, our time management, our descisions and our child…wait maybe the last one is a stretch.
Over the last few weeks I have thought about this whole issue of trust in light of Isabelle and realized I trust God…sometimes. But every night I say a prayer over Isabelle that includes among many other things a phrase that goes like this…
"God help me to trust you with Isabelle. Help me to learn that you love her far more than I or her Mom could ever love her. Help me to trust you more tomorrow than I do today"
It is working, but I must admit that I never realized that I did not trust God very much until I had to hand Him something that meant more to me than myself.
I will keep praying (more on how I pray for Isabelle later) – He will keep teaching me how to trust.
