Rick is a great encourager and pastor. His song "Trust God" says it all:
"Trust God from the bottom of your heart
Don't try to figure out everything on your own
Trust God for where your life is going
God is in control
Commit to the Lord whatever you do and your plans will succeed
Pray Lord I'm available to you, here I am Lord use me"
