Trusting in the Lord

There are times when all we can do is trust in the Lord and know that all things work out for his good. Many times I have to do that. And I pray everyday that the decisions and choices that I make are pleasing to him. There are so many verses that speak about this truth. I thought about this verse all week.

Psalms 19:14
May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be pleasing in your sight,
O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.

Then today I read part of Psalms 28 and read this.

Psalms 28:7
The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts him, and I am helped.
My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song.

Sometimes it is really difficult for me to be joyful. I know that I should let fears or circumstances rob my of my joy. But they do. I am not necessarily sad or depressed. But I worry and I fret. And so all these things take away the joy that I should have just resting in the knowledge that I am redeemed.

Tonight I think that I will rest in my fathers arms and ask him to show me which verse that I should learn this week.

Tomorrow I will post the verse of the week.
