Trust Schmust

So. I’ve been mulling (that word makes me think of cider) over a bunch of things lately. Here’s a few of them:

* Jon’s a college graduate! Congrats, darlin’ 🙂

* What’s next? This a cause of worry.

* Where should we go? This is a cause of stress.

* I can’t do anything about either one! This is a cause of handing a monkey wrench to the Builder of my faith and being like, “Okay, God. Like a Chevy with a radiator missing, here I am.” (This is my version of the Potter and the Clay.)

Here’s what I’m learning: Sometimes, it’s okay to not know what’s going to happen. Jon and I were playing that dumb trust game the other night – the one where you fall backwards into the other person’s hands and see if you don’t freak out – and it’s so easy for me to trust Jon and his intentions and his abilities. Which then begs the question, why him and not Christ?

Easy answer actually. I’m like the slowest learner in the whole world.

“Trust God”. Not just a platitude, but a command. To do the opposite is not only arrogant, it’s disobedient.

So this is me trying again. And again. And again. Someday, I hope to get it. In the meantime, if you ever catch me spouting off complaints, please feel free to take the figurative ruler to my wrist. Okay? 🙂

Have a fantastic afternoon everyone!

Erynn 🙂

P.S. Doing our famous Happy Dance (did this at the wedding too) 🙂 YAY JON!!!

    Hey Erynn~
    Am having trust issues myself of late, so I really appreciated your thoughts (especially since they smelled of cider). Grace is all I have to blame for where I am anyway, so why would God drop me like a hot potato now? Phil. 3:6-7

    Hey Erynn!! I love your books so much! I’ve tried to e-mail you, but it has not been working. So I’ll just type to you on here. I started reading your books at 11 years old. I know that probably wasn’t the age group you intended the books for, but I LOVED them anyway. Reading is one of my favorite hobbies, and like you, writing is my passion. If I can, I will send you part of the story I’m writing. I’d love to get one of my favorite authors’ opinions on it. When I saw your book in the little Christian book store near me for the first time, I was looking for a good book to read while I waited for the next book in the Warriors series to come out (My favorite books!!). I was just browsing, until I laid eyes on MissMatch. I immediately picked it up, briefly read through the back, and bought it. Something TOLD me to buy it! As soon as I started reading it back at home, I was hooked. I had it done in about three days, and wanted more. When I checked out your site, I discovered ReMatch wouldn’t be out for a LONG time!! It crushed me for a while, but I started reading some great classics. Then as soon as ReMatch came down, I swallowed it without chewing, but then went back and read some things over again. Now that I’ve recently finished MatchPoint, even though I’m sad it’s all over, I am very pleased with the ending, and couldn’t ask for more (well…Unless Laurie was to have kids that is. he he). Also I thought I might add, we are a lot alike, from the amazing love of chocolate, to the same slippers. Well anyway, thank you. Thank you so much! I absolutely adore your writing and your personality. Please keep writing and post any new books on your site. Oh, and congrats on your new husband! =) God bless you both!
