“Whatever man needs, God is…”
-Alexander Maclaren

If God is all I need, why do I run? Is it that it is just too simple to go to God humbly, asking for His help, asking for what I need? Is it that I’m afraid that I don’t know what I need? Am I scared God won’t know what I need? Am I scared that God will be like humans, unable to provide what I need? Am I scared God will have what I need but yet with hold it from me? Am I scared that God is unfaithful? How can I realistically have any of these fears looking at what God has done? Seeing God’s track record, how can I say I’m doubting? I hate these times of doubt, though I believe they really do strengthen my faith because it causes me to examine why I should trust God and what causes Him to give me all I need, and what proves to me that He has what I need. I see these times as hard, but strengthening. I just wanted to say that I get frustrated sometimes that the one thing that can help me, is the first thing I run from. Gr. I have more to say about this, so hopefully I will add to it as my thoughts progress throughout the day.
