Eight words to live by

Psalm 55:23b

But as for me, I trust in you.  NIV

Eight words.  My entire project can be summed up in these eight words.  What a comfort!

This morning, as I flipped through the pages of my Project Bible — the one I bought specifically to track the 365 reminders not to worry that I’m certain are there — I was delighted and comforted to find page after page of underlined verses.

God doesn’t just tell us not to worry, he provides example after example of how to conquer it.

And yet, if all I had was just this one verse, I would have the key — trust.

I trust.  Present tense.  Not “I will trust.”  Not “I have trusted.”  No contingencies.  No fear.  Just trust.

But as for me, I trust in you.

That’s what I’ll think about today.
