Real Trust

"Real trust isn't believing that God will do things as we expect he should; it is, rather, believing that whatever he does is good and perfect. We will only find relief from fear if we relinquish our expectations of what we think God ought to do for us and ask him to create within our hearts a trusting expectation for what he wills to do. If we are willing, we will find that his ways are far better than anything we could have chosen for ourselves."
~Trust: A Godly Woman's Adornment by Lydia Brownback, P.76

I just read this today. It is funny that my prayer today was dealing with me trusting God. Thanks for sharing.
