“When He suffered, He did not threaten, but continued entrusting Himself to Him who judges justly.” 1 Peter 2:23
The trusting was already present. Walking it out in suffering was just what came next.
It turns out the word for entrusting is “to deliver to one something to keep, use, take care of, manage”. Placing myself and all I have and am in the Father’s capable hands.
Seems like another example of my experience that you don’t really get to start new things in this initial season of grief. You only have the muscles that were there. I am grateful for all that God knew I’d need in my tool belt in this season. Some days I don’t feel like I remember I have them much less know how to use them, but I’ll continue with the entrusting of that too.
Thank you, Jesus, for your example.
