My children and grands have learned that they can trust me from years of experience. I will love them, help them, serve them, and pray for them without even a thought. My extended family trusts me to be a presence in their lives, to never take them for granted and to cherish the sweet gift of family. My friends know they can trust me--when push comes to shove---and we are in the nitty gritty of life---I am going to be there for them. This trust has been built on experience- years of reliability.
I totally trust God--that He has the perfect plan for me. That His ways are not my ways--and yet the path He has for me--will bring Him great glory. I trust that He loves me--He is faithful to me--He has me in the palm of His hand. Whatever tomorrow may bring-I trust Him. All of this trust has been built upon experience.
My personal "Trust Tank" is low and I am asking God to help me fill it once again. You can trust me, so when I discovered that trust could be broken-the discovery put a hole in my tank and it began leaking out. I am praying He will plug that hole and restore my trust. I am tentatively peeking out of my shell and trying to learn the lesson of trust anew. I cannot spend my life always looking with suspicion and fearing the worst. Somehow--someway I pray that God shows me--how to let down my guard---open up my heart---and trust.
"Though He slay me, yet I will trust in Him."
