Trusting God While You Are In the Garden — 10 Comments

  1. I think what most struck me here is when you said our sight is limited, we have just enough light and it’s what is needed. This is so true.
    When I have ranted and railed at God in the past about things, when I didn’t know what was going on and felt frustrated because the future seemed uncertain and I stupidly stopped trusting God, it made me unhappy, angry etc.

    Then, after I’ve walked through it, come out the other side, I see the wisdom of Father, why we have just enough light. If we saw ahead fully, our hearts would quail within us. God knows the trials we will meet. He will give us what we need at the time and this is where trust and knowing God’s character comes into play.

    I’m gradually learning to trust that the light I have now is just right, it’s perfect for me infact because Father made it that way. God is so good to us like that.
    Jesus said “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matt 6:34
    Big hugs dear

    • I love this comment all over, Caroline. Just up and dime and all around. I have read it now… several times. It’s just great wisdom.
      Love you!
      Hugs from here to your island!
      {any chance on me visiting your island in the future? Let’s ask God. 😉 }

  2. Great post Heather! I love that we can relate to the human side of Jesus and this in turn leads us to the Godly side if we choose to relate on a deeper level. God seeks us in our ordinary struggles and challenges and in reaching out to us He craves for us to reach to Him for all our needs. Beautiful words to ponder! Visiting you from Barbie’s place! Blessings, Mary!

    • Wow Mary! He “craves” for our reach! Beautiful! You just gave me a lot to think about my friend. 🙂

  3. I love how you end by saying “reach out.” Sometimes, all we can do is lift our little pinky, but He is always right there – strong and all-powerful…waiting for us to draw near.

  4. I love the idea of a God-Hug. Heather , your words are a hug. Keep on loving! Thanks for linking up friend!

    • Oops… Wrong reply went out.

      I love your heart, Lisha. It’s full of God hugs. 🙂

  5. Heather, I love this! I have taken many burdens to God in prayer and I have studied this passage of Jesus praying in the garden many times, but have never thought of the connection between the two in this way. I am constantly amazed at the way God chooses to reveal something different from a passage of scripture every time I study it. The “God hugs” is great–I will have to “share” them.

    • I have too! It was not until He truly enlightened me … giving me these words… that it just flowed through my soul onto the screen. I love His revealing at just the perfect time!

      God-hugs are my thing, Sister! I’m all about encouraging people. In this walk. In this life. In this living for Jesus lovely place.

      Thank you for your beautiful comment.
      Bless you dear Heart. ❤️
