I once asked a few people to help learn something about trust. I got some good answers.
I asked, “Be honest: What’s the hardest thing to trust God with?”
I have imagined moments spent with Jesus and seeing his face.
Asking him questions. Seeking his advice. Getting his reactions. Watching him in various situations and circumstances.
I sat on the stairs with my hands covering my mouth, in state of shock.
I was sitting next to pieces of my teeth.
You’re watching a ball role down a hill from the side. It’s a snowball and it’s tumbling down down down.
It’s not only tumbling down, it’s getting bigger and bigger as you descend down the hill watching this snowball not only increases in mass, but also in speed and momentum.
God shapes the world by prayer. Prayers are deathless. The lips that uttered them may be closed to death, the heart that felt them may have ceased to beat, but the prayers live before God, and God’s heart is set on them and prayers outlive the lives of those who uttered them; they outlive a generation, outlive an age, outlive a world.
