It is often difficult to trust in Jesus while we are weak and damaged. When people we love and trust brake our hearts we loose trust in them. Over time, with repeated difficulties and misbehavior toward us, this heartbreak begins to strip away our trust toward everyone. This causes us to put up emotional walls, built in an effort to shield ourselves from the rest of the world. These walls become visible in our personalities; we become unapproachable. I wonder how many times I did this to the people that I love. I wonder if it ever affected their trust in me. All of this muck causes us to be doubtful; doubtful even in Jesus Christ.
I believe Jesus understands these circumstances, and if we ask Him, He will forgive us; but, we must also forgive others. We must forgive the wrongs done unto us, in order to reestablish a trusting relationship with them. Trust Jesus, for He can do no wrong. All that we need to do is ask for his forgiveness. Jesus promised his disciples, as long as they were in the world there WOULD BE trouble. This is true for us as well. Our focus should be on seeking Jesus, the perfect one. His eternal love is our eternal hope, which comforts the soul.
Jesus, I trust in you!
