Trust or Not

Every time I think I have my walk with the Lord going in the right direction, I find that I have yet another area that needs work. Right now the big struggle for me seems to be trust. Trust in relationships with others and with my Lord. Because of that it should be no surprise that I find myself almost in a constant plea of asking the Lord to help me with trusting Him. This concept seems pretty basic in my being a Christian, and yet somehow I seem to lack the ability to fully grasp it.

How often can I say I have done something because I trusted the Lord, or because I feared the Lord?
This seems like such an easy thing to do, or is it? Today gave me another chance to ask myself do I really trust Him? Am I afraid of what will happen if I don't, or what will happen if I do?

It's probably no surprise that I slammed into that wall of trust as I was paying the bills and giving our tithes earlier this morning. Looking at the amount that would be left over from my husbands paycheck after paying all the bills and then giving our tithes, left me feeling scared. Knowing that it would leave us with only $3 to get by on until the next paycheck was issued in 2 weeks, filled me with apprehension. I had a real hard time giving up that money for tithes. There were all kinds of struggles going on with me.

Logic said just pay the bills and forget the tithes, while faith told me to trust. My flesh cried out don't be foolish, while my heart sang of the Lord's faithfulness.
After much emotional tossing and turning, I gave our tithes. Ignoring all the whispers of doubt and worldly reasons not to, I listened to His words of promise.

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
