Trusting for That Day

DSC01683eI’m so tired. I’m sunburned. I have bruises, scrapes, bites, and burst blisters on hands, knees, shins, and forearms.

Best stay-cation ever!

Our oldest son and daughter-in-law came to visit us last week. With our youngest home from college for the summer and our middle son free from his job for a few days, we had the whole family together and spent the week hiking, exploring, bowling, shopping, and biking all around our community. We enjoyed each other’s company and made memories I’ll treasure for life.

But now I’m tired. And try as I might, I just can’t quite generate a blog post yet. It’s time to rest.

As soon as I get back from a grocery run. My husband and son have to eat!

For now, I’d like to leave you with one simple thought from this morning’s quiet time:

“In that day they will say, ‘Surely this is our God; we trusted in him, and he saved us. This is the Lord, we trusted in him; let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.’”Isaiah 25:9, NIV

If we don’t trust God now, we won’t be able to say we did in that day. There will be no reason to rejoice and be glad. Trust requires belief now that God will indeed save—at just the right time—in that day. Whatever you are facing, trust Him now, so you’ll be able to praise Him then. There is a celebration ahead! Believe this today!
