December 1

I found myself not wanting to return to the doctor to have my stitches removed from a minor surgery on my leg; so I decide to take them out myself. I got two of them out without a problem but then the last two were buried! It made me queazy so I had to stop. I was so fearful of possibly leaving a part of the stitch and having to have my doctor dig it out. My husband said he could do it, I was scared but I let Him take them out for me anyway! I was dealing with two issues here, fear and trust. I think we all must deal with these issues occasionally. That fear of uncertainty and our lack of trust in God to handle things can certainly weigh heavy on our minds when things aren't going as we had planned. But sometimes He leaves us with no other choice but to trust Him to handle it. If you are dealing with a situation where you don't see away out, maybe it's God teaching you to trust Him. After doing all you can, let Him handle it!

Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
