Morning Musing Over Coffee - Trust

I have to admit trust is not an easy word for me. It has always come hard for me and I'm not even sure why. Maybe, in part, because I know how fallible I am. Maybe because there have been too many times I've trusted the wrong people, only to find myself let down. I've found myself building walls around my heart. But the same walls that keep people out so that I will not get hurt also keep out the relationships and love that I need.

But there is One that I know I can trust to never let me down. And as I trust Him He is teaching me to once again open my heart to others. He's teaching me it's okay to take risks and let others in, because even though we are all human and sometimes fail each other, He will always be there to lean on.

On Fridays we just write without worrying if it’s just right or not. Won’t you join us? (<—Tweet this!)

  1. Had to visit your blog, seeing that you posted a coffee cup photo. Not only am I a coffee addict, but I too used a similar photo.
    Wonderful thoughts on trust here.
    I agree wholeheartedly and it's comforting to trust in someone other than myself.
    Nice to meet you via thegypsymama. I'm bookmarking you. Have a wonderful day, mary

  2. Indeed...He is there...ready to catch us...makes me think of a trust fall! Remember those?

  3. Trust is very hard to get hold of. I think I do fairly well with trust, but every once in a while, that sneaky little devil creeps in there and tries to make me miserable. It is so wonderful to know that Daddy has it all under control.

  4. love this...i could have wrote it.
    trusting others is a tough thing....but having Him to lean on and guide me through and heal the places that hold me back from trusting others is a huge comfort

  5. Isn't it true that we go through life depending on others to be trustworthy...there really is ONLY ONE who can be trusted:God.

  6. Oh yes. God never fails, but trust can still be hard sometimes. I've been working on that one.

  7. "But there is One that I know I can trust to never let me down." I love this. So very, very true.

  8. "And as I trust Him He is teaching me to once again open my heart to others." This is so true for me right now. Trust in Him comes first; then the trust in others. Thanks for the encouragement!
