TRUST


O.K!
So it's a shaggy old cat.  So what?

Yes, it's getting old and shaggy.  It leaves hair
all over the place.  I do not know how old it is.
But the wife and I were a whole lot younger 
when she came dragging it home.
But that's not the point.

Notice that it is asleep right in the middle of 
the floor.  That cat spends lots of time sleeping
right in the way - where we walk.

Why?
Because it has learned to trust us.  It knows
that we will not step on it intentionally.
It just simply trusts us.

That is what God wants us to do.
Just simply trust Him.
From one cover of the Bible to the other.
God asks us to TRUST Him.

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
And whose hope is the Lord.
For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters,
Which spreads out its roots by the river,
And will not fear when heat comes;
But its leaf will be green,
And will not be anxious in the year of drought,
Nor will cease from yielding fruit."
(Jeremiah17:7-9 NKJV)

"Therefore humble yourselves under the
mighty hand of God, that He may exalt
you in due time, 
casting all your care upon Him,
for He cares for you."
(1 PETER 5:6,7 NKJV)
