Over the years I have found one person worthy of my complete trust. As life unfolds, I find many things I do not understand about Him. His ways are so much higher than mine and He’s much more complicated. As a matter of fact, I cannot figure Him out. Just when I think I grasp a truth about Him, I realize I’ve only scratched the surface and there’s so much I don’t understand. It’s during these moments I rely on Him and His promises that are always trustworthy.

For example, when the storm of life surrounds me and I feel confused, I rely on His promise telling me He has a plan for my life; a plan for good and not disaster, a plan full of hope; one with a future (Jeremiah 29:11). I also remember He has given me a gift … peace of heart and mind … and nothing in this world can take this gift, which quiets life’s storms, away (John 14:27; Proverbs 1:33).
There are other days when I am tired and the cares of this world are weighing me down. During these life moments, He reminds me to come to Him and find rest (Matt. 11:28-29), cast my cares on Him, because He cares for me (1 Peter 5:7) and not to worry about tomorrow because He will provide (Matthew 6:34 ).
Then there are the days when I am strong. When I actually keep my mouth shut instead of spewing words that cannot be taken back, when I love someone who is being unlovable, when I forgive undeservedly, or when I stop to help someone in need. These days reveal His promise that I can share in His Divine image (2 Peter 1:4); that He gives me strength to overcome and power to soar like an eagle above life circumstances (Isaiah 40:29-31).
Yes, there are many things I do not understand or comprehend about Him but this one thing is for certain … daily … He keeps His promises to me. There are moments in time … when I fail to hold up my end of the relationship … I fail to keep my promise to Him. It’s during these moments that He reminds me … nothing can separate me from His love… poetically and tenderly … He tells me His love will never be separated from me. He tells me life cannot separate it, death cannot separate it, no power in the sky, no power on the earth, nothing that’s ever been created can separate me from His love (Romans 8:37-39).
All I can say is … He’s never let me down. He keeps His Word … and I love Him. He’s my Father, my Creator, and my God.
