Open me Lord, and let me flow…

Even the footsteps of the butterfly,
and the trembling of its wings give proof of Your love.

Trust has been a major theme in my life and the following verses and passages are those I have hung out with quite a bit along the way.

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in ADONAI with all your heart;
do not rely on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him;
then he will level your paths.

Psalm 91
You who live in the shelter of ‘Elyon,
who spend your nights in the shadow of Shaddai,
who say to ADONAI, “My refuge! My fortress!
My God, in whom I trust!”—
He will rescue you from the trap of the hunter
and from the plague of calamities;
He will cover you with his pinions,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
His truth is a shield and protection.

You will not fear the terrors of night
or the arrow that flies by day,
or the plague that roams in the dark,
or the scourge that wreaks havoc at noon.
A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand;
but it won’t come near you.
Only keep your eyes open,
and you will see how the wicked are punished.

For you have ADONAI, the Most High,
who is my refuge, your dwelling-place.
No disaster will happen to you,
no calamity will come near your tent;
for he will order his angels to care for you
and guard you wherever you go.
They will carry you in their hands,
so that you won’t trip on a stone.
You will tread down lions and snakes,
young lions and serpents you will trample underfoot.
“Because he loves me, I will rescue him;
because he knows my name, I will protect him.
He will call on me, and I will answer him.
I will be with him when he is in trouble.
I will extricate him and bring him honor.
I will satisfy him with long life
and show him my salvation.”

Isaiah 12
In that day you will say:
“I will praise you, Lord.
Although you were angry with me,
your anger has turned away
and you have comforted me.
Surely God is my salvation;
I will trust and not be afraid.
The LORD, the LORD himself,
is my strength and my defense;

He has become my salvation.”
With Joy you will draw water
from the wells of salvation.

In that day you will say:
“Give praise to the LORD, proclaim his name;
make known among the nations what he has done,
and proclaim that his name is exalted.
Sing to the LORD, for he has done glorious things;
let this be known to all the world.
Shout aloud and sing for joy, people of Zion,
for great is the Holy One of Israel among you.”

Hebrews 11:6
And without trusting, it is impossible to be well pleasing to God, because whoever approaches him must trust that he does exist and that he becomes a Rewarder to those who seek him out. 

So I keep asking, keep seeking and keep knocking  (Matthew 7:7 and Luke 11:9)   ….keep trusting.
