Things don’t always turn out the way we hope or expect. Losing our 21- year-old daughter in a car accident 26 years ago continues to affect our lives daily. A constant adjustment is necessary to remain confident and trusting.
“Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.” John Woodin, famed UCLA basketball coach
The most effective sport teams are those who trust their coach IN ALL THINGS as he/she leads them through each aspect of the game or competition...including grueling practice time. This kind of mutual trust fosters direction, protection, connection and affirmation. Another “woodinism" here... “Teaching players during practices was what coaching was all about to me.”
Having an IN- ALL-THINGS kind of trust in God follows this same pattern. He teaches us to be patient through our physical suffering, expectant for His provision, calm while in stressful situations, and faithful in hard work and hopeful while waiting for answers. (see 2 Corinthians 6:4-5)
David, a man after God’s own heart, experienced all of the above and cried out saying...
Why am I so depressed? Why this turmoil within me? I will put my hope in God...I will still praise Him, my Savior and my God. Psalm 42:5
PRAYER: IN ALL THINGS I will trust in you with my whole heart. I will not depend on my own understanding but rather seek your will in everything I do. Thank you for showing me which path to take. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen. (see Proverbs 3:5-6)
TRUST YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER’S WISDOM –
FOR IT IS PERFECT IN ALL THINGS!
