  1. Sarah Mae,
    I needed this post this morning. I am up extra early because of unsettling thoughts whirring around in my head. I love this thought, “Trust the One who holds my days in His hand.” I may doubt me, but I can trust Love’s heart for me. Like you, I want to be satisfied at the end of my days and putting my trust in a truly faithful God is the way to go. Thanks for the needed reminder!
    Blessings,
    Bev

  2. Excellent Sarah, thank-you. I get so hung up on my own choices and failings, and wonder if I am ever going to get it right. Thank-you for the reminder. I will be sharing this post with my own readers. :))

  3. I needed this also, I agree with Bev I love the thought “Trust the One who holds my days in His hand”. I truly needed this.

  4. Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom Sarah. Living life well so that when I leave this earthly abode I may leave at peace- satisfied, has been the heart of my prayers. God has been revealing to me that life is but a short breadth so don’t waste it away in worry, unbelief, or judgement. I try so hard to get it right by following His way but truth is I am still learning how to listen and discern His voice from all the other noise. I want the victory of walking in full surrender and godly wisdom. Like Abraham, the “how” often gets in the way of the “what” regarding God’s promises. Thank you for the reminder that I must simply breathe and rest my heart and life in His hands because He IS the one who holds my days! God bless.

  5. What a beautiful post.
    “His sins didn’t define him, his faithfulness did.”
    Absolutely. Beautiful.

  6. Sara Mae,

    Than-you, this is so refreshing,”Living satisfied trusting in the Lord.”

    I need to stop worrying so much about what I haven’t done right. For instance, yesterday on my son’s BD I had his cupcakes prepared for his class. But then I knocked his cake on the floor lost half of it and had to start from scratch. I couldn’t believe I could do such a thing.Thankfully @ the end of the day he really enjoyed his BD.

    Take Care everyone,

  7. Thank You for sharing this with us, I often think that I am on the right path of living my life for GOD, and often find that I still feel empty inside, as though I am here alone.. But I will not give up my GOD and my faith him in,,, My faith , my will keeps me going every day ,

    • I am finding rest lately in living my life *wit*h God instead of for God…and the with, I think, inevitably becomes the for. Love to you friend.

  8. Sarah Mae,
    Wow! Great post! We hear of Bible people and forget that they were human also. That they made mistakes, yet God still loved them and called them faithful! It is easy to doubt man, but we all need to Trust God and pray about our decisions!
    Blessings 🙂
