That word has occupied MUCH of my thinking time lately. What does it look like? How do you prove it?
How do you overcome the fear that may get in it’s way?!
I’m not ready just yet to divulge the specific circumstances that have the concept of trust at the forefront of my brain. Suffice it to say, that I know I’m being called to trust God in one specific way and it’s a little scary. It means doing something I don’t really want to do. I don’t understand why and, to sound just a tiny bit whiny, I don’t like it!
If you were to ask me if I trust God, I would say yes. But words are cheap. What does that “trust” look like? If I say that I trust someone to do a task I have given them and then I constantly nag them about the task, questioning their strategy, correcting their method, do I really trust them?! Should trust come with action?
Then there is the fear. Sometimes trusting people means giving them access to parts of your heart that are easily broken. Scary stuff.
If you read this far hoping for something profound . . . sorry. Still chewing on this whole concept. not sure where I’m going to end up. The ride sure is intense though!
