“What percentage of your heart’s trust belongs to the Lord?” she asked. The question was genuine, with no jugment of me.
“Well, one hundred percent of course!” was my initial reaction. “I can’t even do anything right without Him.”
But my heart started to wonder over the next few days. Because even though I am completely sold out to Jesus, the Lord and King of every part of me, there are indeed many other places my heart relies on.
Like my ability to think.
And the discipline I practice daily that allows me to finish tasks.
And the fact that the sun rises and sets every day and I can plan accordingly.
The horror of this realization was most unsettling. Do I really have scattered trusts and God only gets a piece of the pie? Like 43 percent or 17 or 82?
“Oh, that You and You alone would be my trust, oh God!” I prayed earnestly.
More light came over the new few hours.
Even though I do rely on my ability to think, self-discipline, the daily rhythm of the sun, gravity and whatever else I rely on, my heart acknowledges taht God is and forever remains the author of it all; I revel in that revelation. It is the wind beneath my wings.
And as I stretch my wings with the understanding He placed in me, I glorify Him by moving in His gifts. By resting in His gifts.
He graciously gave me a brain and put me in charge of it.
He purposefully trained me in many things, made me proficient in them and holds me accountable for them.
He placed me on His earth and expects me to use its rules and manage it.
Do I have scattered trusts? No I do not. They are all gathered in one basket, and God, He gets all the glory.
