We must fully entrust our all to Christ. It is hard to entrust our time, our money, our dreams and our hopes to God. The hardest test of this for us has been what we call giving God our “nothing.” If God would call us to give all of our money to the poor, that we could do. If he called me to talk to all my neighbors about him, that would be hard, but still doable. How do we obey in the absence of a direct command? How do we react when we entrust all of our hopes and dreams to God, all of our time and money, and we get nothing? It is much easier to trust God with something than with nothing. It is easier to feel his presence when we are about some great spiritual task than when we have no great thing to be doing. I know that I’m not communicating this well. I think what may be going on is this: that God wants me to dwell with him in these idle moments. He refuses to allow me comfort in doing, but only in resting.

Let us think of Him perpetually. Let us put all our trust in Him. I have no doubt that we shall soon receive an abundance of His grace, with which we can do all things, and, without which we can do nothing but sin
