The One and Only

A few days ago a friend and I were discussing how much we trust God, and the path that He has brought both of us on over the last few years. Yet, through the journey, we have both realized, pockets in our lives where we still do not trust! As we have prayed over and over for God to restore our lives and to teach us to trust, there seems to be another corner and BAM,  I, at least, am noticing that my trust is somewhat wavering. Trust in Him, in His people, in who I am, in the journey He calls me to walk, and the calling He calls me into, wavers at times. Trust is a big deal for me, and God is constantly working on my trust muscles.
I woke up thinking about this conversation with my friend this morning, and God sent me to Isaiah 45, verses 5-7.  This is what it says:

I am the Lord and there is no other;
Besides me there is no God. 
I will gird you, though you have not known me;
That men may know from the rising to the setting of the sun that there is no one beside Me.
I am the Lord and there is no other, The One forming Light and creating darkness, 
Causing well-being and creating calamity;
I am the Lord who does all these.

He is The One and Only, and these verses helped me see this morning that on those days when I feel like I am walking through a calamity, or maybe I feel like I am the calamity, I can trust Him with it. When I feel like I cannot see where I am going because the path ahead is dark, I can trust Him with that too. I can remember "I am the Lord who does all these."
He brings well-being and He brings light, He set all things right to those that trust in Him.
Jesus, Say That Again, You are The One and Only Lord who does all these things!
