I don’t know that I can write on trust.
If trust was vitamin c…I would have scurvy.
A child in the 80’s when divorce was all the fashion I was shuttled between a house of abuse and returned to one which washed me in guilt for going to the other house all creating an internal emotional electrical storm in my young self that I kept a tight grip on. The electrical storm crossing and snipping wires of trust.
But the great thing is I really don’t need too much…. I do have some…. but what is enough trust…
so i relax knowing…
I am not in charge.
You are not in charge
Not in control.
So my trust scurvy is my own little prison… but it doesn’t have to stop me from accomplishing all that He has for me.
There have been airplane rides where I didn’t trust the airplane….doesn’t matter. The plane doesn’t need me to trust it…it isn’t about me.
There have been streets I have walked down and I didn’t trust the darkness….doesn’t matter. The darkness didn’t rely on my level of trust to keep me safe.
Anxiety attacks that I thought would surely crush me and ruin me for good… but luckily my level of trust wasn’t the end all be all….if it had been about me I surely would still be stuck in one spot.
There has been plenty of instances in life I didn’t have trust in the events and people around me…. Looking back I realize it is self centered of me that my level of trust meant one drip
To think your trust in a situation is what makes things happen or not is absurd.
There are plenty of people who have little trust in God…yet there He is…trust or not.
It’s not about our trust level… but His love level.
Let’s not confuse the difference between willingness and trust….
the leper was willing but he knew it had nothing to do with his trust level..
all about His Willingness:
New International Version (NIV)
Jesus Heals a Man With Leprosy
12 While Jesus was in one of the towns, a man came along who was covered with leprosy. When he saw Jesus, he fell with his face to the ground and begged him, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.”
13 Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” He said. “Be clean!” And immediately the leprosy left him.
