About Trusting God

You don’t have to understand God to trust him.

“Just trust me.” Those are the words we often hear in movies just before something bad happens. And yet, we are told to trust God. In a culture where we tend to take control of our own lives, trusting God has become a religious platitude rather than a life-changing attitude. We say it, but do we really mean it? And what does trusting God really look like?
Sharon, Mary, and Gwen—the Girlfriends in God ministry team—have been there. They’ve traveled the tough roads of life to discover the peace and power that comes from grabbing the hand of God and trusting his plan. The life stories they share bring laughter and sometimes tears, but always spiritual growth.
Each of the 12-week sections concludes with a Bible study guide and journal page, inviting you to lock arms with Sharon, Mary, and Gwen and share with other women in a small group setting or to use individually in your own quiet time.


Praise for Trusting God

“Reading this devotional feels like you’re chatting with your best girlfriends over lunch! These women make you feel like they know you—that they know what it feels like to be you. I love the variety and short length of each daily entry—you can read one in the time it takes to finish your morning coffee! Practical, sweet, and inspiring, Trusting God will help you do just that. And by the last page, you too will have some new girlfriends—Mary, Gwen, and Sharon!”
—Jennifer Rothschild, author of Self Talk, Soul Talk and Lessons I Learned in the Dark

“Girlfriends in God—Gwen, Sharon, and Mary—are some of the wisest women I know. My friends make trusting God seem simple, possible, and attainable. A girlfriend is someone who watches out for you, encourages you, and provides opportunity for you—and that is exactly what you will experience from these Girlfriends in God. If your life is feeling unstable, unsure, unreliable, or the path feels unknown, Trusting God will keep you under God’s umbrella of
tender-loving care.”
—Pam Farrel, relationship specialist, international speaker, author of best-selling Men Are Like Waffles, Women Are Like Spaghetti and The 10 Best Decisions a Woman Can Make

Trusting God in this world of uncertainty and economic upheaval isn’t easy. We all need to learn, relearn, or be reminded daily of the truth that God can be trusted for each day’s problems. True to their real and relatable style, this wonderful Girlfriends in God devotional is just what you need to encourage your heart and refresh your spirit.”
—Georgia Shaffer, licensed psychologist in Pennsylvania and author of Taking Out Your Emotional Trash

When I read this book through about a month ago, I had no idea the impact it would have on my life. Recently, I have seen quotes on my Facebook newsfeed from various friends who had been reading it, and they always seemed to be read just at the right time in my life when I needed to do so. After a week of seeing these quotes, I knew I had to read Trusting God! And I am so glad I did. The book is set up in short devotional style readings...

Trusting God is a 12 week adventure into changing your attitude and learning what it truly means to trust God. We all have told ourselves that we trust God, and that we will rely on Him for everything, but many times in our culture it is much easier to say that we trust God rather than actually trusting Him. Do we really know what it means to trust God fully? That if something were to happen we could give Him every piece of our lives and know...
