I DON'T want to be an Israelite....

I DON’T want to be an Israelite...
I'm struggling.  Struggling with trust and faith.  I've been through valleys and wildernesses.  I'm in the wilderness now and yet, I still struggle with trust.  After ALL that I have seen the Lord do in my heart, life, and family, I still have a hard time trusting that 1. God will do what He said He will do. and 2. That He really is out for my good...even if it hurts me.  
Trust- firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something (dictionary)
              To support, confirm, be faithful, uphold, nourish, to be established, be carried, make firm (concordance)
How do I get from where I am to where I want to be and should be in my faith?  Why do I keep judging God based on what man has done or is doing to me?  When will my heart receive that God is MORE than man and can be trusted when man cannot.  In this current situation, I think it is a matter of when I see things from one perspective and think IT is best for me when in fact HE sees it from an all different perspective and can see things I cannot see.  
That would make my wisdom more wise than His if I think what I see is best versus what He sees.  He’s got the whole picture, I’ve just got a piece of the puzzle.  I have basically told God I am wiser than Him and I know what’s best for me and my family.  How to overcome this mentality?

I am not sure as humans in this fallen world that we can actually overcome this mentality-- I have watched others in awe.. wondering sometimes how they seem to have it all together, and get blessed tremendously because they have the "right" answer but it is really true? Are they just putting on a front like most of us do? Often times I think of Job--He never forsook the Lord-- He never turned away as the evil one thought, but did he not question, even at times doubt, or stumble but in the end He complete surrender and knew-- I THINK you know my dear friend... I just think the enemy tries to make you think otherwise!!

Love you tons and know God has you in his hands
