Grace and Truth {February 12}

Grace and Truth, February 12, When God Calls You Beyond Just Good

I like the familiar.  I like routine.  I don't like not knowing what to expect.  But sometimes, God presents me with opportunities that take me outside my comfort zone, where nothing is what I'm used to, and where I have to let go of expectations.  @@God is trustworthy and so very good.@@  I can look back on my life now and see, that it's most often during the times of uncertainty, when there's nothing to do but trust God, that the deepest spiritual growth has happened. These are the times when the truth of just how trustworthy and how good God really is, has worked its way from my head to my heart. 

...God has perfectly planned and designed this change to help me to grow, to teach me to depend on Him, and to bring Him glory in ways that I never could have imagined on my own. But to get there, I have to give up the good that I know and accept the greater that God is leading me toward.
— Meredith

 The featured post this week is all about trusting God through uncertainty and it's called When God Calls You Beyond Just Good.  It was originally posted at Arabah Joy's blog and was a guest post, written by Meredith of The Wicket Gate. I hope you'll read it and that you'll check out Meredith and Benjamin's encouraging blog, where they write about growing in the Christian faith.
