Trusting God without Loving Him

Last summer Ginger and I prayed more than ever. We stood face-to-face with an extreme crossroads in our lives. We needed to decide which ministry position to pursue located in different parts of the country. Our decision felt life-altering. Praying often was easy and necessary.

We needed answers so we leaned on the person we trusted most: God.

God answered our prayers and revealed His beautiful will.

Recently, I sensed that my prayers have been less intense and regular. Why? The answers I need feel less pressing and less urgent. Then I wondered if God asks, “Do you just want answers or do you want a relationship?”

I lean on Him during the storm because I trust Him. I lean on Him during the calm because I love Him.

Learning . . .

Our conversation will be better if you participate.

  1. I’m still confused. Are you saying you trust God without loving him (as the title seems to suggest) in the hard times? I don’t think that’s right at all. Maybe I’ve just misread.

    • Hey Trey I did not mean to imply that I do not or did not love God rather trust alone does not automatically, reveal love. I do believe it’s possible to trust without love. For example, I can trust the government without loving it, etc. I’m personally seeking a deeper relationship (more love) with God for reasons beyond His trustworthiness. Make sense? Thanks Trey!
