Oh what needless pain we bear when we don't take everything to the Lord in prayer...no detail of our lives too small to escape his notice.
Only a Brit would set off for a 6 mile walk in the pouring rain. No other choice in our climate eh?!

Trust is the opposite to fear. We fear the unknown, what lies ahead in the future, what we can't see. As Christians, we don't have to face the future as an unaccounted for unknown. We have a gracious and loving heavenly Father who goes ahead of us and has every little detail worked out. Nothing takes him by surprise, no twist or turn of providence makes him go "whoops" I didn't see that coming! He is a good and kind God; look at the cross to see that demonstrated "while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us"...when our circumstances are perplexing and hard to understand may the Lord give us grace to both trust him and keep our eyes on the cross where we see his extravagent love displayed for us when he sent his son to die in our place.
