A New Place of Trust

(Kathy Gabler)—It took a few weeks for me to realize that in order to stay still I had to get to a new place of trust in God.  I had to willingly and actively keep trust in the cross-hairs of my awareness.  I began to picture trust as that middle point on a seesaw where you are neither up nor down.  In that place, circumstances cannot get you uptight in high anxiety with your whole body stressed and straining, nor can the situation cause you to hit the bottom in despair or discouragement or depression.  Trust is a place where you do not live by what you SEE or SAW but by confidence in God and His steady, unmovable faithfulness.  From that early morning conversation, I had learned that I would have to stay alert and rein in my thoughts in obedient follow-through daily, if not hourly.  (Fourth excerpt from Kathy’s article “Trust Gives God Access” Vol.22Iss3)
