Trust Changes Everything — Chosen Committed Complete

I’ve been thinking of the words to a hymn: “Trust and obey / For there’s no other way / To be happy in Jesus / But to trust and obey.” Christians should be happy, but the song tells us that we can’t be unless we trust and obey. I’ve been working on the trust part of this, as I read Jerry Bridges’ book Trusting God. I haven’t finished it, yet, but I want everyone I know to read it. I wish I had read it sooner. The front cover reads, Trusting God: Even when life hurts. The subtitle made me assume it was a book about facing trials, so it never seemed the right time to read it. I happened to grab it recently, after rereading one of Bridges other books. To some degree, it is about trials, but it’s much broader than that. If I had been the publisher, the title would have been, Trusting God: No matter what life brings. I’m afraid people who could have learned from this book may have passed it up.
