Trust is a beautiful and frightening concept. Some people trust people moments after they say hello and some people trust people after years of getting to know them. Trust is tricky. Trust is difficult to earn, but easy to destroy. When you find people who are safe and love the Lord and love you, trust comes easily and naturally.
I have a small group of friends that I trust completely. There are three of them and I would trust them with my whole life. I recently shared with them something I do not share openly. It was a very emotional and painful thing to share. I shared with them my deepest insecurities and fears. I let them see the unhealthy version of me. I showed them my anxious and fearful self. I showed them the version of me that I hide from the rest of the world. I showed them my deepest wounds because I trusted them.
Jesus was wounded and murdered so that my wounds could be made whole. Christ lived and died and resurrected so that I can share my story with others. He placed special people in my life so that I can share with them my weaknesses and ask them to walk with me and pour love, grace, and encouragement into my life. If I can put my trust in people who are fallible, why can’t I put my trust in my Father who is perfect?
Our Father is the most trustworthy being. He will never fail us. He will never let us go. He will never leave us nor forsake us. He is faithful. This season has been an eye opener for me to see that I can truly trust God in every situation. The painful ones, the happy ones, the sorrowful ones, the scary ones, the apathetic ones, the lonely ones. In every situation He proves to be faithful and trustworthy. Let me never doubt Him again.
