The news has been full of horrible headlines. We’re feeling this with you, but the question remains – how on earth do we respond?
When Lauren Daigle wrote the song, “Trust in You,” she learned something that can help us today.
She says, “I walk into the writing appointment and my friend is sitting there and he says, ‘Lauren can I tell you a story?
…There’s this man that wen to help Mother Theresa and upon his arrival she said, ‘Is there anything I can do for you?’
And he said, ‘Yeah, you could pray for me. You could pray that I have clarity.’
And she said, ‘No, I’m not going pray that you have clarity because it’s the last thing you’re holding onto.’
And he was like, ‘What are you talking about? Look at all you’ve accomplished and all that you’ve done. Surely, you’ve had clarity.’
And she said, ‘No, I’ve never had clarity, I’ve only had trust.’
And that changed everything for me.”
No, we don’t have all the answers. But we have faith in God and He’s so much bigger than the questions.
Today, the answer is to trust.
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)
