Learning to Trust

God has been working on me A LOT lately. And by lately I mean a looong time. I am just now realizing it and seeing it clearly more often. I am learning that I let fear take over a lot. I am learning that I need to trust God with every part of my life. In particular, I am trusting God to take care of my little girl today as she has surgery on her “trigger finger” thumb. It is supposed to be a 10-minute procedure, but it still makes me nervous to let her go and get the anesthesia and be without mommy and daddy.

There is another reason I am not completely easy about this situation. The reason I initially lost a lot of my trust in God happened 10 years ago today. My dad passed away suddenly after a back surgery. He was recovering, scheduled to come home in a day or two, and then he contracted sepsis, and was gone within 24 hours.

My cousin has a blog and was wonderful enough to ask her friends and family write guest posts for her this summer. I was honored to write a post for her, and wrote about my journey from losing trust when I lost my dad and learning to trust again. You can read that post by clicking here.

I thank you in advance for your prayers for my little girl and the doctors and nurses working with her. And for peace for her parents! 🙂

    Amy – you have put into words what I have been feeling. Praying constantly for Jordan and her doctors. Even with our faith – we are human and have fears and concerns when our loved ones go through trials. Love you and your entire precious family.
