An excerpt from You Have Chosen to Remember: A Journey of Self-Awareness, Peace of Mind and Joy by James Blanchard Cisneros.
|Inspiring video on trusting God|
Lily Tomlin once said: “Why is it that when we talk to God we’re said to be praying, but when God talks to us we’re schizophrenic?”
Do you trust God? If you were asked this question, your immediate response would probably be, “Yes, I do trust God.” If you were also asked: Do you ever worry? Your answer would probably be, “Yes, I worry sometimes.” My friend, allow me to say that if you truly trust God, then you would never worry. If you choose to worry in any situation then know that you are not fully trusting in God.
Trust God or worry. These are the two choices that we have in every situation. Trust God and be at peace. Worry and experience stress. Our choices are that simple, and we make our lives as peaceful or stressful as we choose to make them. Trust God and be at peace. This is all that is asked of us. Yet, over and over again, we choose worry over trust, and make our lives a living hell.
Our level of peace is directly related to our level of trust in God. The more we trust God, the more peace we experience. The less we trust God, the less peace we experience. If we choose to completely trust God, then stress will not be a part of our experiences. If we experience any level of stress, it is because we have chosen not to fully trust God.
