Trust





Trust is something so elusive in this world. It seems that we cannot fully trust everybody including ourselves. How many times have we been hurt because those we trusted with all our heart betrayed us? How we cried and spent sleepless nights because of the cruel betrayal of our trust? And how many times we were so disappointed with ourselves because we were not able to keep our promises? Why? Because we are finite beings, unable to be faithful in every way and in every circumstances. Because we have been swayed by the machinations of the evil one. And when we succumb to his temptations, we hurt ourselves and our loved ones as well. The only Being we can trust wholeheartedly, and who will never ever break our trust, is God. He is faithful and true to the very end and He never lies. He is always patient with us and understand our weaknesses and our proclivity to sin. That was why He sent His only begotten Son to save us from ourselves and from the corruption of this world. We must understand the weaknesses of man and must not expect 100% trust and confidence in him and in ourselves as well. Only God is truly trustworthy and is faithful to the very end.

Trust is - first believing self And then believing others maybe.

Hi TeJan/Laikka,
Yes, complete trust and confidence can only be found in God, not in ourselves nor in others. We fail to honor such trust in some points in our lives and we have hurt others by that. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

Hi Arvin,
We cannot completely trust a person or even ourselves for we are all finite and commit mistakes. Only God is fully trustworthy for He is ever faithful and He never lies. Thanks for your visit and comments. god bless you always.
