So God wants us to trust him because he is ever present. He is in our past, with us now and is leading us into the future He already knows about. I taught a youth group lesson about how God knows the whole picture. We told the story of the last supper. While we told the story of the last supper someone was drawing something that at first appeared to be a bunch of lines.

This is something I am struggling with. See Jesus is trying to free me. Free me from my fears and asking me to follow him. He keeps showing me that he has plans to prosper me not to harm me. (Jeremiah 29:11 [I have seen this verse about 10 times in the past few months]). God is trying to get my attention. He has this great plan for me, but my fear is paralyzing me from moving forward. He knows that so yesterday I was reading from Chatting at the Sky blog. Emily the writer asked everyone to be courageous this weekend. I also woke up yesterday morning thinking about a video from Tenth Avenue North's video Fear is just a Lie. Add to that my pastor has been preaching on trusting God.
I have a feeling God is telling me to fear not! He wants me to take that step out of my comfort zone. I know where God is leading me he just wants me to trust him, he will protect me.
