This is probably the hardest five letter word there is. Trust is hard because sometimes, in order to trust we have to be vulnerable. We can’t let down the walls that guard our hearts. We don’t want to set ourselves up for hurt, so we build the walls, in doing so it builds a lack of trust.
Jesus said time and time again “trust in me”. He knew it was a hard thing for humanity to do, but He asked it of us anyways. When we let down the walls to our hearts and allow God in, that’s when miracles happen.
As a foster parent now, I have been tested with trust more than any other time in my life. I have to trust in so many things. Trust in the court system that they will do right by the children. Trust in the DCS workers. Trust in the biological parents. Trust that the judge will make the right decision for the child’s best interest not just becuase he is bound the laws. Trust in my friends to support me through this emotional roller coaster. Trust in my church for their prayers. Trust that I am strong enough to endure the constant ups and downs fostering gives. Trust that my marriage will survive the constant heartache it can bring. Most importantly, I have to trust in God.
So, I say to you today to trust completely in Gods plan, don’t take matters into your own hands. Don’t allow the enemy to consume your heart with distrust or bitterness. Allow God to consume your heart and soul, trust in His Word, trust in His plans for your life, trust in His promises. He is the most trustworthy thing we can ever hold onto! He will never cause us to lose trust in Him.
“Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act,”
Psalms 37:5 CSB
