Trusting is hard, for a lot of people it is impossible,
That is why many people shy away from religion,
Because it demands trust of the highest order,
And the trust has to be there even when things are going bad,
You simply have to believe and know that the storm will past,
As my pastor said last night, ‘At some point we have to stop wrestling with God and know that we can just hold on, cling to Him…’
That is really easy for me,
Because my faith has took me through some things,
Trust that!
Now trust in a person is of a different order,
Particularly for those of us who were raised to be fierce,
Told we don’t need nobody,
Can trust nobody,
We can do it all, relying on ourselves,
Whew…that can be so damned tiring, Trust That!
I am married to a strong, silent, loving man,
And I know without him having to tell me,
Though he does, occasionally,
I can be a handful,
And for years I relied on me,
Thought it was my responsibility to do it,
All, Superwoman for real,
Shoot, I could have a career,
Get a degree or two, while handling,
A strong marriage,
Super kids,
A clean house and cook like a chef,
Yeah child, mama was a bad mama jama,
But one day I realized how tired I was and he told me,
‘Baby, you don’t have to do all that, you have chosen to …”
I looked at him like he was freebasing,
He smiled saying,
‘Trust me…”
I was too tired to force the issue,
I was at the if it don’t fit don’t force it juncture,
So I gave into it,
Feeling it was no big deal, because I already trusted him… right?
Umm hmm,
But I learned to and I do,
And you know what the world still turns,
And I am free to be me and do the things that please me,
Because I can trust that what I don’t handle,
He has already got it covered,
Damn…that’s nice, real nice…

Love Peace and Blessings

Yes, it does...but man is it worth it...there is so much freedom in allowing someone else to take care of it and you....

I used to say in God I trust ONLY, but realize that I have to trust my fellow man at times too. Don't get me wrong, it's not an easy thing for me to do, but I've been able to trust some people. Even trust that some folks can't be trusted :)

Before we can trust anyone including ourselves we have to trust the God that is within us. The all powerful, all knowing and the Great I Am (Our Creator) is one we can trust. It is wonderful when we have a significant other or friend(s) we can lean on and depend on, but can we really trust anyone- including ourselves- about everything and all situations- 100% -all the time? I think not- Only one we can trust is our Creator to do just what he/she say he/she would do. Don't you think it is a matter of what the issue is we are entrusting that person with?

I feel you!

And Linda who the heck is talking about trusting anyone 100% of the time...girl...I am taking baby steps here, but I want to go on the record as saying that TRUST beats the pants off of DISTRUST and surely God cosigns on that one!
