What If I Can’t Trust God? (Part 1)

  1. Anna says:

    I love your honesty and your heart, Michelle. The way God leads and teaches us is very individual, but still we are to witness His true nature through all of it. I believe that God is not a taker. I believe, when Job said said his famous manifesto , blaming God for taking everything away, he didn’t yet understand a nature of God. Later, I believe it’s chapter 42, Job repents of everything he said before. He says “ I had only heard about you before, but now I have seen you with my own eyes. I take back everything I said, and I sit in dust and ashes to show my repentance “. You are so right- we live in a fallen world- and the devil is so hard after us, especially after God’s children. His mission is to make us believe that God hurt us and to somehow look for strength to “forgive God”; to make us believe that God is a taker, to make us stop trusting God.
    God never causes death- the enemy does. God didn’t take away Job’s family and possessions- the enemy did. God mourns and grieves with us. God comforts us. God cheers us up. God loves us. And I know you believe in it, too! We just always need to be reminded of who God truly is, and who God is not.

    I totally get asking questions…. shortly after my 2nd daughter was born. After coming through a hard pregnancy (that she wasn’t expected to live through) at 9 weeks we found out she has down sydrome. This shook my faith as a young mother.
    I didn’t know what to do with the questions I had and felt like I shouldn’t share them. So, thank you for sharing yours.

    I just changed my blog host and I’m in the process of moving over what I had. This testimony of mine will be there soon. I think you will like it.

      Hi Crystal! Thanks for dropping by! I am definitely going to read your testimony. I had a teacher when my husband and I were at Bible College who’s youngest daughter was born with down syndrome while they were missionaries in South America. His family’s story of God’s grace was incredible, and his daughter is just beautiful. What God does through our children is amazing and often beyond comprehension. He is good, indeed.
