Have you ever woken up from a dream with a phrase in your mind?
It was many years ago that I had one of those experiences, and the words I heard upon waking were, “Trust the Process.”
How many times since then those words have echoed in my mind! Months when I wasn’t sure where my life was leading me… Weeks when I wondered if my efforts mattered… Days when I didn’t think I could find my way through a particular challenge…
“Trust the Process!”
The day I woke up with those words ringing in my ears, I wasn’t sure what that meant or why I was getting that particular message. Trust? And what Process?
I’ve learned a lot since then. The Process is life. And what is life but constant change?
The Trust is spiritual. “Trust the Process,” is another way of saying what all the spiritual traditions teach: “Be not afraid!”
Whatever we face, whatever we walk through, we can trust that it is all in divine order.
“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death” (Psalm 23), I shall fear nothing, for God is with me!!
Always and forever!
