  • Trust

    Posted by Unknown Member on November 4, 2021 at 11:56 am

    I think sometimes we throw words out without really knowing their meaning. This morning I am looking closely at trust.

    To Trust: believe in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something

    – believe that someone or something is good, honest, effective, safe, will not harm

    – to rely upon or put confidence in

    So when considering a relationship, we should break it down and not just ask “can I trust him or her”, but

    – Can I rely on them?

    – Are they truthful with me?

    – Have they been/ are they being honest with me?

    – Is the situation a safe one, or will it cause me harm in some way?

    -Is this person (and am I) strong, healed, and as whole as possible?

    That is a very thorough way of looking at trust. I do know that trust requires a leap of faith if all the statements are positive. Even with the Father, we know He is trustworthy, but we still find it difficult to trust Him. As we walk together, it gets easier!

    Trust is deeper than words on paper. I think it is action in follow-through. Also, someone who has been betrayed may need more time to process in a relationship.

    This is a two-way street, meaning both parties have to develop trust in each other. Each one is bringing their issues with them. We do not start with a blank slate our past often dictates how we view each other. I may say that I rely on YHVH to guide me in this or that situation, but if we are honest, we also bring past situations into this relationship. We must deal with these problems before starting a new relationship. If we do not or have not dealt with them then we are doomed to repeat those same errors. We may even try comparing this person with a former spouse or relationship. It is not fair I know but it is the truth. Something to think about. YHVH is the only one who can heal a broken heart.
