TRUST in the lord with all your heart
        and lean not on your own understanding proverbs 3: 5-6

trust can be hard when dealing with the world, but god overcame the world  (john 16:33)  so trusting in him can be easy // 

in what ways do you put your trust in God? 
in ways do you need to put your trust in God?

i try really hard to give everything over to God everyday. keeping it to myself gets me no where good. i tried and landed flat on mah face.
what i'm trying to say is i trust him in every way everyday.

i love all of lindsay's work!

What a beautiful print. If I had my little girls, that would definitely be in their room. I don't think Matt would appreciate the pink!

Thank you for always keeping our eyes focused, C. xo

Beautiful print! There's definitely big times in my life when I know I put my trust in God. I struggle knowing how to do that in everyday little ways. But maybe that IS trust... simply knowing He's taking care of me.

Oh--I love proverbs 3!! Everyday I pray to surrender more and depend more on is hard for me. I love to think I'm in "control"! How wrong that is...and thankfully so! He does more than I could ask or imagine! Need to trust Him more with my timelines in my life and with my employment.

when the hard trials come like a jackhammer pounding on the bedrock of my soul...i sometimes have to beg God to increase my faith and trust in Him. I am too pathetic on my own to even trust Him properly. But he says in John 16:23

"I tell you the truth, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name."

and so I ask/beg/plead that He will enable to me to trust Him.
