sunday style + trust in the Lord

Howdy hey!

We've got another installment of sunday style with miss amanda. We totally didn't plan our outfits, but we kinda matched! I can say that I like dressing up a bit for church. It's just fun. And it's even more fun to have a friend to do style posts with!

So one of the themes in my life, in general, these past few days has been trust. to trust in the Lord.

I know that it can be difficult to not worry or stress about things. I know that it seems nearly impossible to try to remain calm [hello! I get anxiety often] and give complete surrender to the Lord, but I know that when we do, he grants us his peace. Life is no doubt, full of trials and hardships. No one ever said life would be easy. Thankfully, for me, my faith in God has allowed me to endure such hardships but also to come out on top, brighter & stronger than before, and for sure, closer to God.

Here some scriptures that I like that remind me to trust in the Lord. Sure, I've heard or read of the following often, but I ask myself, how often have i really pondered and prayed over these words?

It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.---psalms 118:8

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.---proverbs 3:5

But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all thy works.---psalms 73:28

I think too, that as we put our trust in God, one, we are practicing our faith and second, we are relying on Him. And as we draw near to Him, he draws near to us.
