I think about the word for a few minutes, considering how this word "Trust" affects me.

When I think about Trust, I think about all those people, friends or family, who I thought I could trust but have broken my trust, have failed me in some way or the other and, yes, I have done the same for them. People break promises time and time again.

But I look up on my wall and read these words, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding." Proverbs 3:5. I have that verse there for a reason. To remind me to trust in God because so often I don't. When life is hard, when people fail me, when school isn't going well, when I can't see my future; I look up on my wall and see that verse and I am reminded that there is one that I can trust wholly in, that is Jesus Christ. He has never failed me, has never left me, has never broken a single promise to me, yet how often I fail to trust him completely.

I get caught up in all my worries, fears, and failures, which are so many; they engulf me and I feel that I will sink under their weight, but I look up and Christ holds out his hand, saying, "Trust Me". He is faithful to keep his promise to me even when I am not faithful to him. He can be trusted when the storms come and when the floods rise; he will keep his promise.

And so I lean on him once more.
