proverbs 3:5

"trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding."

today, i'm focusing on those words, meditating on them, and to be honest, i can't get past the first word....trust


i think my hold up is that in this broken world that we live in, it's not easy to find a good example of how that looks...or how that feels. and that's sad to say.

so i spent some time trying to figure out what true trust looks like and what it would feel like. and yet i couldn't come up with a valid earthly example because everything i thought of had broken trust some where along the line.

the only one who is the true example of trust is God, plain and simple. He's never broken my trust, never failed me or left me. and even with God as the shining example, i still struggle with this passage.


because i'm looking towards the earthly, instead of the eternal.

i'm looking to the here and now, instead of things not of this world.

i want an earthly example of trust.

do you have one?
