I’m thinking about trust tonight.
Trust is precious and valuable. Oh so valuable.
Worth more than money,
Not something to be taken lightly,
Not something to be given lightheartedly.
As I’ve grown I’ve had to earn it. My parents have honored me with the weight of their words,
“We trust you. You’ve earned our trust.”
Those words are powerful and sink into me tonight.
They trust me.
Trust is more valuable than any sum of money.
Trust is precious.
As I ponder that five letter word beginning with a “t”, I’m overwhelmed as a verse rings through my ears.
Proverbs 3:5 – “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding."
That thing more valuable than any sum of money,
And, the precious word that shouldn’t be given lightly.
We are called to trust in the Lord with all our heart.
That word in the midst of that verse has so much more meaning tonight.
He is more worthy of trust than anyone, yet sometimes I say no.
I hold onto that which is expressed in English with five letters that begin with a “t”.
I hold onto that which is more precious than any sum of money,
And I say, “No.”
My heart aches for the times I’ve said “no” and pulled back.
I want to trust.
To really trust-
The One who deserves it most of all.
