Trusting the Lord that all will work out when in the midst of traveling up those heavy paths of challenge and hurt is not an easy undertaking. I discovered when I was living in the mountains that there were steps I could take to help me more quickly turn crisis to confidence- fear into faith. See “The Trust Trek” for my story.
One step that helped me greatly on my journey to learning to put greater trust in the Lord during the hard times was focusing on what the Bible says about trust. This mini-study includes just a few of the many scriptures about trusting in God.

Thank you, Lord, for the many assurances we are given that we can trust in You. I ask that you would bless readers with encouragement in whatever circumstance they finds themselves in right now with knowledge that they can give the situation to You. Thank you for helping me daily to do the same thing- for reminding me- even today. In Jesus’ name, amen.
