Two Essential Daily Confessions

But I trust in you, O Lord; I say, “You are my God.” My times are in your hand; rescue me from the hand of my enemies and from my persecutors! -Psalm 31:14-15

Two important confessions:

  1. I trust you. 
  2. My times are in your hand.

I trust you when life is falling apart…

I trust you when I can’t seem to fail…

I trust you in between these poles…

I trust you because no one in the universe is trustworthy…

When cancer comes and seems pointless… my times are in your hand.

When the job looks uncertain… my times are in your hand. 

When the dark night of the soul won't lift… my times are in your hand.

When global and local society seems to be plunging further into the abyss of chaos… my times are in your hand. 

The ability to trust, and knowing your place in history, are essential for joyful living.
