I’ve heard it explained this way:
Trust = Commitment.
For example, even if you don’t do it my way, I’m still going to be faithful.
Trust. Something that can be lost in a second.
What do you trust? Or deeper still, who do you trust, really? I do, but… I trust him in everything, except…I will go anywhere. Just not there…
I believe we struggle with trust because we know how unfaithful we can be. Not one of us is perfect, but we are all in process. When our trust is broken we are quick to build up walls. Walls against people, places, cultures, religion, relationships, political views, likes, dislikes and on and on.
At the core of each of us we are in need of patience and practice in this area.
Start with our faith.The question isn’t whether or not God has a plan for us…The question is whether or not we we will trust his over ours.
