f.r.o.g.

No, not that kind of frog. I mean the acronym. It stands for Fully Rely On God.

Definition of rely: Depend on with full trust or confidence.

This is something I need to work on. Yeah, I know God has a plan for me, and that He's always in control, even when it seems like things aren't right. But there's a difference between knowing and trusting. I need to have more faith in God. Believe in Him with all my heart. Hey, you need to fully trust someone before you give them your life! And I have, I've surrendered to God. But I find that I trust through the good times, then when the boat starts to get a little shaky, so does my trust in Him. And I don't want that. I want me and Him to have a strong relationship.

"And I'll trust You God with where I am
And believe that You will have Your way"
~ Britt Nicole lyrics

I want to start trusting, not just knowing. I want to fully rely on God, not just semi rely on Him, that's not good enough. I want to believe and have faith instead of worry and have doubts. Because I know that once I trust in God, once I fully rely on Him, that He will use me in ways I could never imagine.

"Trust the Lord with all your heart,
and don't depend on your own understanding."

~Proverbs 3:5

  2. I'm working my way to f.r.o.g. I find it hard when it's just normal too. When I haven't had a verse that really speaks to me or something like that. I feel like I'm not being a real Christian and that I don't pray enough. I think that is my weakest point. I need to put that last verse on my wall...it really encourages me. Thanks for doing such a great post Shelley! Sierra
