Two simple words encompass the realm of amazing faith.
Enabled to believe, I must choose to trust.
All magnificent glory of God’s creation bears witness.
The order of the universe confirms the Word
with observable miracles at every turn.
The exquisite fragileness of hummingbird wings allow it to fly
Immeasurably small eyes turn toward me with sight.
Iridescent throat feathers glow red in bright light.
I trust because light continues to reveal things too wonderful
to exist apart from the power of Almighty, Holy God.
As a young child my joy overflowed in expressive fountains.
Responses winged upward in the flight of emotions.
Trusting parents and teachers, I was innocent and without care.
Increasingly now I become further aware,
it is God’s words that encourage patience in waiting.
Trust is that bridge between emotion and godly wisdom.
Trust holds reign over stumbling blocks of confusion.
Circumstances must not be allowed to consume me.
Situations beyond my strength provide opportunity
to permit witness of the Lords faithfulness,
and uphold trusting confidence in Him alone for eternity.
He confirms His listening ear in a manner I can hear.
In His timing and purpose, answers are certain to appear,
though often not as my humanness might desire.
He alone knows true requirements essential to ascend
to mountaintop heights He would lead me to aspire.
Growing confidence flows through practicing this trust
through obediently taking each step to the fore and
listening for His leading to lift life far above the dust.
Trust has divine beginning in seeing what He reveals in creation.
I find contentment in responding as a child with full-grown elation.
He allows me to see His love shining through earthly shepherds
as they discern His will and lead with apt words.
Through scripture’s lens God illumines truth to add purpose to living.
In humble repentance we are given His gift of forgiving.
Trusting His Spirit for wisdom lights the way to persevere.
Faith transforms the nature of sight and makes hidden things clear.
