One day a stranger looked me in the eye and asked me if I believed in God. I answered confidently, “Yes”. And then he said, “but do you trust in Him”. Then went on his way. Since that day, I have spent a lot of time pondering on his words.
What does it mean to trust in God. Do I trust in God? Because surely if you believe that God is real, you would trust in Him wouldn’t you?
I am still trying to learn how to fully give over my life to God. Naturally, when dealing with addiction we try to control everything we can. I cannot tell you how many times a day I catch myself making decisions in hopes it will positively change the outcome of this fight, I drive myself crazy trying to use my will to make this all better.
In reality peace will only come by trusting in God and taking advantage of the gift of the atonement. If we really believe in God, we would also trust in Him.
