We hold hands and the sky is the limit for us. And I say that because I know. I know what it’s like to choose to lose trust. I know how high the stakes are when trust is shattered. And way back at the beginning we decided there would be no secrets. No holding back. Nothing left unsaid. Nothing that wasn’t shared … because we both knew the consequence of withholding–withholding information and details, and ultimately your heart.
Trust is the foundation of any relationship. It is the bedrock providing the stability and framework that allows it to stand. Yet to trust requires you to be confident and believe in the goodness of another. And it requires allowing your heart to be vulnerable. And that means having to take the chance that you may get hurt.
And that’s where trust becomes a decision, the decision of every relationship.
Will I trust?
Will I risk?
And of course we have to be safe in that choice. We evaluate the probabilities and examine the risk and we decide. But one thing is sure, without trust, a relationship will crumble. It will not grow or be sustained for long.
And not only is this true with human relationships it’s true about God too.
Do you trust Him?
Can you examine the evidence available and determine the risk?
Are you willing to expose your heart to His great love and trust in what it is He gives?
Because all things are from Him and through Him and to Him … and He has an amazing plan for you. I know. Because that’s what He’s done for me. When I was not trustworthy, He rescued me. He turned it all around. And I know He can do it for you too. Because when you trust Him, and hold His hand, the sky’s the limit for you too.
Praying you choose to dwell and delight. That you would commit and rest, and that you would choose to trust Him with your heart. The sky will be the limit!
