The Power of Trusting God

We all face difficult situations in life. But the good news is the Word of God is full of scriptures to help us trust God through each obstacle in our pathway.

As we travel along life’s path, it may be hard to have complete trust in our Creator. After all, it’s human nature to have doubt and fear about what lies ahead.

But by trusting in the Lord and His plan for your life you will receive the gift of grace and His helping hand for the amazing, sometimes crazy, ride we call life.

At His core, God’s character is love. He has promised to walk this path alongside of you and never leave you when the going gets tough. All because of His great love for you!
