Hello everyone…and a very "Happy Tuesday" to you all! Well, here we go again…another new day; but I say… "Praise God for another new day"…one that can take us away from our yesterdays and give us a brand new start!
I don't know what it is…but lately I've been struggling with one thing…and it always seems to begin around the first of July, which is the month of my birthday. It seems that since I have overcome so much of the past…the past seems to have a way of reuniting with me, during this time of the year…and instead of displaying before me, a movie of good times; it seems to rewind and replay some of the painful moments I once experienced…and I think the one thing that has been coming at me the most right now; is how difficult it's been to trust another person. Sometimes I just wonder why do we put so much into trusting man…when man can't always be trusted?
As I look back on many painful moments of my life, when others let me down and broke my heart deeply…people that I thought could be trusted; I also remember the struggle I had, when I felt the need to heal from the past and trust once more. For some reason, I felt that I had to learn how to trust people all over again, which wasn't easy for me to think of doing, after some very heartbreaking moments; but it was God who truly took that load from me…through words that came from a Bible verse in Psalm 118:8, which reads… "It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in humans." You will never know the load that had been lifted from me that day…the day when my eyes had been opened to this truth that I had never known before…a truth that made me realize that I didn't have to trust anyone…only God.
Even though these moments of my life have been hard and difficult at times, due to the damage that has taken place over the years; there is one thing that I have truly come to see…and that is how the lack of trusting man has nudged me further into the arms of a trusting God…One who has always been there for me…and One that has proven Himself faithful to me…over and over again.
You know…we all experience moments of hurt and rejection…and what do we do…we continue to work harder at trusting someone that just cannot be trusted…and why…because we feel the need to be loved; but is that the way that we should look for love? Instead of working so hard to achieve a love that just isn't real; why not turn to One who we can trust to love us and never hurt us. One thing that has always reminded me of this; is that God would never hurt the one that He created to love. Do we realize that God created us; because He knew that He could love and care for us? Now, I don't know about you; but that's enough for me to know.
No matter who has rejected you…and no matter who has let you down; just know that there is a God who can fill the emptiness within and be trusted…One who strives everyday to show us that…and how do we come to truly see that for ourselves; when we can reach back to Him and trust Him to do what He longs so much to do within our hearts and lives.
Have a very blessed day…and just know that life can be much easier, when we choose to trust God alone!
