Anyone finding it difficult to trust today? . . . y0u know, to put your heart, your reputation, your life out there on the edge? What is it about trust that makes it such a fragile commodity and in such short supply? And why are we so quick to throw to the ground those who have failed our trust test? Could it be because trust . . . more than any other thing . . . crumbles and shreds our soul . . . when it is broken on a personal level?
It won’t be long, but sooner or later on this very day, you will pause for a meal and for a beverage that will renew, replenish, nourish and strengthen your physical body. Sustaining and thriving in life on both a physical and spiritual level . . . especially when it comes to building or rebuilding trust . . . requires regular periods of refreshment, renewal and encouragement. From Psalm 13:5-6 we read . . .
“But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in Your salvation. I will sing to the LORD, for He has been good to me.”
This is David “JB” Miller reminding you that for those today who are looking for this commodity, this resource . . . for those who want to smile again without reservation . . . for those who want to not just get by in life but really want to fly . . . you might think of trust in God this way:
- T. Taking the step to put your greatest possession unreservedly in God’s hands . . . your heart
- R. Revealing your hopes, your hurts, your weaknesses, your dreams, your fears and finding . . . greater intimacy and grace
- U. Unconditional confidence in the goodness and wisdom . . . of your Maker
- S. Sidestepping independence in the belief that a greater good can be accomplished . . . in Divine relationship
- T. Time reveals what we lean on the most and teaches us how to warrant the confidence of others . . . it if we will but listen, observe and act . . . in humility
