This Week’s Prompt: Trust

What do we need to follow up an amazing retreat experience with?

Trust.

Trust that he will carry the burdens we’ve released to him.  That when we’re tempted to pick those burdens up again, we’ll instead lean into trust.

Trust that we will hear the Shepherd’s voice and know his nudging guidance for us.

Trust that God does indeed expect us to rest, not just for a special retreat, but as a lifestyle.

Trust that he has healing for our every wound.

Trust that receiving what God does for us truly is the best thing we can do for him.

Trust that when we fall, his grace is there.  That our failures are simply an opportunity to receive more of him.

Trust that he who began a good work in us truly will carry it on to completion.

 

Bring your link ups on the prompt “Trust” to The Grove beginning Thursday 6pm EST.

    I’m trying to figure out how to do the link up to the Grove. I’m writing a post on Trust. I’ve been “going to” write for a Grove link up for months now… but haven’t been able to get up the courage. I’m working on it now, but cannot seem to figure out how to do it. I’m looking for the “blue link” and went to the Grove page and read and looked all over. Is it only open on Thursdays? Please help!

    Hi Beth,

    The Grove opens every Thursday at 6pm EST (so convert to your local time).  You can still link up on last week’s Grove on “Expectations” here: https://velvetashes.com/category/the-grove/

    But for this week’s “Trust” prompt, you’ll need to wait until Thursday.  The blue link button will be at the bottom of The Grove post.  So glad you got up the courage! Looking forward to reading!
