Trusting God

Trusting God

I was trusting God. I now had more time to concentrate on Godís plan and getting healthy. I went to two different nutritionists and began to eat a low fat diet with lots of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. I bought ďorganicĒ whenever possible. My teacher friends purchased a juicer for me so I could make juices and smoothies out of whole fruits and vegetables. I took vitamins and drank herbal teas and lots of water. I gave up caffeine and wine. I took daily walks and long relaxing warm baths. I spent time in prayer and meditation Ė trusting God. I joined eight Bible studies, but soon cut back to two weekly studies that required lots of homework. I also attended biweekly and monthly covenant groups and spent hours reading the Bible and other inspirational books. I kept a journal of my feelings and the things for which I was grateful. I even went to a psychologist to deal with some unresolved anger and guilt. Most importantly, I learned to fully trust God. He is the provider for all my needs. His grace is sufficient.

As for God, His way is perfect;
The word of the Lord is proved;
He is a shield to all those who trust in Him.
(Psalm 18:30)

The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer;
My God, my strength, in whom I will trust;
My shield, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
(Psalm 18:2)

Trusting God and releasing everything to HimÖ

Cancer has taught me to trust. I was always trusting myself, instead of trusting God. But I find that God provides for all my needs. When I get overwhelmed by circumstances, itís because Iím trying to do it again, and not turning it over to Him. When I release my cancer to God, He works everything out for good.

Trust in Him and He will act.
(Psalm 37:5)
