Trust is . . .

Trust is giving up what little I have in strength and power so
I can confidently relax in His power and strength.

Gloria Gaither

So yesterday I was talking about my trust issues regarding the sale of our home. This morning when I went to flip over my little stand-up booklet entitled, "Quiet Getaways - A Daily Journey Toward Peace" the above quote is what was on the November 2nd page. I guess God's trying to tell me something by way of this little stand-up booklet. This isn't the first time that's happened. It seems that whenever something "big" is going on in my life and I'm needing some major feedback from God, He uses this booklet to speak to me. This happens when I read my Bible too, but I'm always amazed and thankful when inspiration, encouragement or affirmation appears in my little booklet. I'm often tempted to peek ahead to the next day's "message" but stop myself from doing that so that I don't ruin "God's message" for me for the next day.

I've got a daily turn-the-page recipe booklet too, but it doesn't inspire me as much as my devotional booklet does. I wish it would, because tonight I am at a loss as to what to make for supper!
