Around four years ago I went through a season of difficulty like I've never faced before. A few years later yet another difficult time came when my Dad was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.  I often thought about what trust truly means and how I can trust God more with the difficult times and circumstances of life. We all go through these seasons, but a lot of times we face this issue of trust in our day to day lives with even the simple things.
So, here is what came to mind regarding trusting God and what His Word (Proverbs 3:5-6) says about it and how we can exert discipline along with what God's Word says about trust.

Trust! What is Trust?
It's a word we use in which we are not comfortable with.
Trust is when we must relinquish our plans for our life for His plans.
It's giving up our way of thinking for His way of thinking.
God requires us to trust Him and Him only. To depend and rely on him alone.
This trust brings us to a new and higher level in Him.
God's ways are not our own, His ways are higher.
He alone knows what is the best plan for our life.
So, why not trust Him today with your life?

It's not to late to start trusting Him with your life.  Trust Him the rest of this year with your plans, your seasons of difficulties and despair? Wait and see what God does in your life. Watch how he works out those difficult and trying times you face and how He comes to your rescue each day. Taste and see that He is good! Are you ready to go to a new level with Him? A new level of Trusting Him? Just Trust!!! I dare you!!!

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
 in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight.

Proverbs 3:5-6
