How to Trust in God – Resources for Spiritual Growth and Spiritual Guidance
If you want to learn how to trust God and are seeking guidance from God in your life, I don’t believe in coincidences and that you landed here for a reason.
How I began to truly trust God was by learning the power of meditation and to be still. We meet God in the stillness. In fact, meditation changed my life.
Journaling, or what I call contemplative writing, has also been a way that I have drawn closer to God. If you have never kept a journal, it’s wonderful to record your own faith journey and see how God has moved in your life. Many times I’ve forgotten how a prayer was answered until I go back and read some prior writings.
Perhaps you are new to your faith, or, if you are like me, you are seeking God’s plan for your life (it’s an on-going process!). It doesn’t matter where you are in your faith journey, what matters is that you are stepping out! Every journey requires taking that first step, then stepping again and again.
Sometimes we’ll make tremendous progress and sometimes we will take a few steps back. That is the nature of the spiritual path. What’s important is to keep moving!
I am juggling caring for my mother, who is 93, and being the primary breadwinner for my family since my husband lost his job at the end of 2009. That happened New Year’s Eve of that year. Happy New Year!
So, I can tell you firsthand that God has a plan. Through this tumultuous time I started my own marketing and consulting business. I found that all I did was re-create the same stress I experienced in the corporate world, only now I owned the business!
That is changing once again as I continue to let go and let God lead me. I am now pursuing my dream of being a published author and helping others on their spiritual path. While I’m finishing up my first manuscript, I am still helping clients, but I am slowly letting them go to focus on my writing and creating full time.
Many times I wanted to give up. But God has brought incredible people into my life and has financially provided through amazing ways. My new prayer is, “I trust You.” Then, I also have to constantly remind myself to get out of my own way. :)
In The Guided Life emails, I share my stories and offer encouragement to help others seek and find God’s plan for their lives. The last three years I have truly learned how to trust God.
I am looking forward to creating more videos, blog posts and resources to help others as I juggle all of life’s to-do lists. Social media is another animal that I haven’t begun to tackle yet, so I will be participating when I can be consistent and to make meaningful contributions. Until then, I am faithful to The Guided Life and sharing my experience and resources that have helped me.
My readers are such an encouragement to me too! I love it when readers share their own experiences with me. It is such a blessing! I hope that you will join our community by subscribing at the top of the page. The Guided Life is free.
My sincere wish for you is that you will enjoy the peace of Christ, that you will live in the present moment, maximize the present moment and step into the incredible person God intended you to be!
Peace and blessings,
