Building Trust, Living Fully

Building and maintaining trust is a wide open subject for most. A subject we take for granted all too often, substituted for rumors, hearsay, opinions and missteps. True trust relies on factors of bearing ones true heart, identity and making ourselves vulnerable.

We see examples of truly trusting people in both the New and Old Testaments. Paul, trusting, rejoicing to God in prison, Daniel, in the Lions den trusting God to protect him….the list of examples for us go on and on….and yet, so often, we miss the point. We MISS the examples’ for today’s real life applications. It IS difficult, I know. To fully TRUST is to give of oneself, totally….to know that there is something greater than ourselves directing our paths, IF we ALLOW IT.

How about how this applies to relationships today? Who and how much do you TRUST those in your sphere?? It has been said if you have 5 people in your life you can fully TRUST, you are fortunate.

I wonder, how does God looks at our trusting nature?? Or is it learned? I suggest the latter. We are born perfect, and learn worldly ways.

So how to “unlearn” and become fully trusting so that we may LIVE more fully for and in Him?

I have found immense assistance in prayer. God DOES listen. He so desires us to live fulfilled, happy lives. He so desires us to KNOW He is FOR us. He desires for us to live FULLFILLED, in His Holy ways.

If you have time today, sit and ponder your Trust levels, how they affect your daily functioning and how fully TRUSTING something GREATER than yourself may just be what you need.

Blessings to All, T.

  1. This is a good one and makes me recall many people that have been in my life across the years, I might have been too trusting at first but learned what the scripture means, “the arm of flesh will fail you” because of this, I will be friendly with most anyone but my trust is in the Lord and only a handful get past a certain point, I’ve become somewhat reserved, I’ve lived a long time and seen a lot but I am very comfortable in my happy place❤️❤️
