This morning I helped get my mother to the hospital for surgery to fix her broken leg. As we were getting her in the vehicle I told her to let me hold her and lift her up into the seat. She can not put any weight on her leg at all so she had to trust me completely to get her where she needed to be. She said, “Oh Alex, you are so strong”!

Isn’t that the way it is with our Lord. Or well it should be.

There is a place that I need to be. I wanna grow spiritually. I want to be a better husband, father, son, brother, uncle, cousin, preacher, minister, and Christian. That’s where I wanna be. I wanna be better. I have to put my own work into it for sure but I should also trust in the Lord to help me be better than I am in each aspect of my life. I need to trust the Lord when He gives me opportunities for growth. Sometimes we are too quick to come up with excuses to not grow and be challenged.

I need to trust the Lord for me to grow and be better.

A great reminder is found in Isaiah 55:8 For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord.

Trust in Him and He will get us where we need to be.
