- Today’s word is:
To trust someone is to let them into your life and heart and have confidence that they will be for you, to believe the best in them. When that trust is broken it is harder next time to completely trust the next person, a small wall goes up around ourselves, and if, repeatedly, trust is broken then the wall gets larger and larger. We learn to rely on ourselves.
To trust is also to have faith. I liken this to trusting in God. I trust and have faith that he will continually guide and lead my family and I. I believe that he has our best interest at heart. That is probably the difference between trusting in God and man. Most people, eventually, put their interests above yours, whereas I don’t believe God does that. Sure, sometimes he’s awfully quiet and doesn’t seem to be moving as quick as I think he should. That’s when I really need to slow down and trust Him, rather than try and help Him out and speed up the process. God is sufficient for me and will never forsake me. His ways are good, though they are not always my ways! In my weakness He is strong. He has always come through for me and never let me down. Sure, the end result has not always looked like how I had imagined it would, but that is having faith and believing in God. I trust in Him for today and for my future, because, He has continually shown me that he is trustworthy. With Him I have no walls (that I’m aware of!).
