Trusting God with Your Future : Day 1 from Waiting with God - Giveaway


To celebrate the giveaway we're doing with the terrific people at Free Book Friday, each day this week I will be posting a devotional from Waiting with God to give you peek inside this inspiring devotional which was born from my own year of waiting with God.


 Day 1


But I am trusting you, O Lord,
saying “You are my God!”
My future is in Your hands.

~Psalm 31:14-15




Day 1


Trusting God With Your Future


Talk about a dive into the deep end. What a great way to start our devotional journey!
Do we trust God enough to not only say: “You are my God, my future is in Your hands!”
But to believe it and live it?
If you’re not quite ready to make this commitment to God today, let’s make it our goal to be there at the end of 31 days together.
If you’re like me and have tried to do everything on your own, the most difficult decision may be letting go and letting God.  What an enormous amount of trust it takes to say, “Okay God, I’ve tried to do it my way, but I’m ready to let go of the reins and turn my life over to You.”
My first reaction to that announcement has always been: But what if I don’t like the plans God has for my life?
Don’t worry. We’re going to tackle that question within these pages.
This conflict of asking for God’s help but not totally trusting His ability or willingness to answer, was what finally made me turn to the Bible in search of guidance and to many, many hours of prayer to seek God. In the end, I was able to say, “God, You’re in charge of my business, my finances, my life”.
In the past, I tried to do it all myself.  With mixed results.

Now, I declare that I am asking for God’s blessing on my future and trust in Him to work it out for the best.
Will you join me to trust God with your present and your future?

When our spirit hungers

The precocious toddler’s interest in talking to her mother grew in insistence as the gathered group settled in for an hour of silent prayer. Shushing didn’t work, so the mother led her child into an adjoining room where she would still be part of the sanctuary, but sound would be dampened. Despite the closed door and heavy glass walls, the child’s fervent desire to speak with her mother was still audible.
I said a prayer for the patient mother determined to stay, and for the child who was either tired or hungry or impatient for Mom’s undivided attention. And then tried to bring my wandering thoughts back to prayer. I had come to Adoration with my own pressing need for answers.
Over the past few weeks I’ve noticed a growing emptiness in my heart. A void, as if something is missing. It’s not psychological. Not physical. After doing an internal check, I determined it’s a spiritual void that I’m experiencing.
No, I’m not doubting God, his existence or goodness. I have full confidence in…

Open to the Spirit - Book Review

Open to the Sprit is like reading a letter from a friend. McKnight writes a very accessible introduction to the Holy Spirit and its role in our spiritual life. McKnight uses several stories from his life and others to share how the Holy Spirit consoles and deepens our daily spiritual walk. A terrific book for those seeking an introduction to a relationship with the Holy Spirit.

Simple Spinach and Kale Fettucine

On Wednesday I picked up my first box of organic from the High Country Conservation Center’s Summit CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). Way back in February, I bought a ‘share’ in this summer’s crop, which entitles me to a weekly box of organic vegetables from mid-June through October.




Now that the vegetables have arrived, I have two reactions: 1) Wow! This is so exciting! Look at these beautiful vegetables, I’m going to be so healthy. 2) Yikes! What am I going to do with four bags of greens?









For the next sixteen weeks, I want to share my culinary adventures as I cook my way through my CSA box each week. Even if you don’t subscribe to the CSA share, you’ll enjoy these recipes which focus on our summer bounty. I hope you’ll also be inspired to try more vegetable-centered meals. Now, back to those four bags of greens! 


This week’s recipe polished off two of the bags immediately. You can make this easy and tasty recipe for two or four people, just increase the amount of greens and th…
