To trust in God really means to live in total acceptance of what is. This does not mean that you live passively in the world. You live in the world with love, honesty and integrity. You live an empowered life in partnership with God.
You know that your experience of life depends entirely upon the choices you make. You know that your thoughts, words and actions lead inevitably to the consequences that follow. You know clearly what you want and what you do not want but you are not attached to the outcome.
If things do not go your way, then you trust that whatever is happening is exactly what is meant to be happening for your highest good and for the highest good of all. Perhaps you were not fully conscious in your choices or in your thoughts, words and actions. Perhaps God has a lesson for you that will later prove to be invaluable, even if you cannot see its value right now. Perhaps God has a grander plan for you than you have for yourself.
In any event, your trust in the unfolding will of God is unwavering and unshakeable. If it is happening, it must be the will of God. If you do not accept what is happening, then you have entered into judgment, which will take you into separation. It is that simple.
