Author Lillian Duncan tells how she trusts God in difficult times and an unreasonable world


Only One Sane Choice!
Joshua 1: 9
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.
It’s been a rough year for me. Last May I was diagnosed with bilateral brain tumors called schwannomas. They are benign but still require treatment, which will last for at least another year. Between the tumors and the treatment, I haven’t felt well for the past six months, have partial facial paralysis on both sides as well as hearing loss.
The reality is we’re still going through the crises and we don’t know what the future holds. Things are getting better and God is working in our lives, but we still don’t know and won’t know the outcome of all my health “issues” for quite some time.
But guess what?
You don’t know what the future holds either. You may think you do. You may have all sorts of activities, goals, plans and strategies in place for the next year or even five years.
The truth is none of us know what will happen in the next minute, hour, day, week, or ……well, you get the idea.
When faced with that truth, there really is only one sane choice.
TRUST GOD.
Trusting God is the only reasonable choice in an unreasonable world.
God will bring a supernatural peace and joy that confuses the world. We don’t have to understand everything. We don’t have to know the future. All we really need to know is that God loves us and will be with us wherever we go.
Trusting God really is the only sane choice!
