Guest Post: Trust

Guest Post: Trust We are so excited to share a guest post from Jo-Lynne Shane from Musings of a Housewife. Jo-Lynne shares with us why trust in Christ is simply enough.

1 firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something

We Christians talk a lot about trust. And faith. And hope.

In the car, my children often sing along to this song:

When I am afraid, I will trust in you
I will trust in you
I will trust in you

When I am afraid, I will trust in you
in God whose word I praise.

In church, we occasionally sing this song:

Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to take Him at His word;
Just to rest upon His promise,
Just to know “Thus saith the Lord.”

We say we trust His promises, but what promises does He make to us, exactly?

Does He promise that everything will be just peachy as long as we trust Him?

Surely not, as any believer who has lost a child or suffered a debilitating illness or had a spouse walk away can attest.

No, we trust in this simple promise:

I’m so glad I learned to trust Him,
Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend;
And I know that He is with me,
Will be with me to the end.

Nothing more, nothing less.

And that is enough.
