Day before yesterday, I talked about the baptism of Jesus and how God, Himself, declared who Jesus was and how He felt about Him.

I either trust Him…or I don’t.

“I either trust Him…or I don’t.” I have spoken these words, so many times, over the last year. When I was seeking God’s guidance with a chronic health issue and I was feeling led down a not-so-conventional route of healing, I told my husband, “I either trust Him…or I don’t.” When I felt led to…
