Trusting God without Loving Him
Last summer Ginger and I prayed more than ever. We stood face-to-face with an extreme crossroads in our lives. We needed to decide which ministry position to pursue located in different parts of the country. Our decision felt life-altering. Praying often was easy and necessary.
We needed answers so we leaned on the person we trusted most: God.
God answered our prayers and revealed His beautiful will.
Recently, I sensed that my prayers have been less intense and regular. Why? The answers I need feel less pressing and less urgent. Then I wondered if God asks, “Do you just want answers or do you want a relationship?”
I lean on Him during the storm because I trust Him. I lean on Him during the calm because I love Him.
