My relationship with Jesus is like throwing a ball against the wall: it’s going to come back to you. So when I pray to Jesus there will always be an answer to my prayer.
I know that having faith in God is a commitment which involves trusting God, or trusting in God. I would like to think of faith as trust. If you don’t have faith in God, then who knows what’s going to happen next for you – because only He does.
Sometimes I get mad at God, and I know I shouldn’t. I think to myself, “Why? Why would you get mad at a Savior?”
I recently watched a powerful video that struck me. A preacher said, “How do you define God’s love?” That’s a critical question. If you have a child, and they say they love you because you let them eat ice cream, but instead you tell them to, “Eat your vegetables!” they’re going to say, “I HATE you!!”
If you prayed to Jesus, and you asked Him to bless your day, and you had a bad day, you would get mad if you were a child. That day I found my answer. Jesus wants me to trust Him. So I don’t conclude that He doesn’t love me when I don’t get a blessed day, or if my dog doesn’t make it out alive, or if I don’t get ice cream.
If I put my faith and trust in Jesus, I’m going to be okay because I know that there is a good, good Father watching over me.
