It's hard to trust

~Friday for Friends~

It's hard to trust. Really - at least for me. Maybe there are people who trust others easily. Maybe. But, probably, for most of us trust is something hard, scarce, and, honestly terrifying. The idea that we should tell someone something that's dear and important to us and he'll laugh in our faces -or behind our backs - isn't too encouraging. But...

Trusting in someone can be worth all the fears that might come along. 

Sure, there are people who we shouldn't trust with something important. And we might make a mistake or two in picking our confidants. But the rewards of trusting can truly be amazing!!!

Also, we have Someone we can trust no matter if the whole world's against us.

And no matter how great our friends are they just can't beat God. Isn't it wonderful that you can trust the Almighty so much?

"Those who know your name trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you." Psalm 9:10(NIV)

How about you? Do you have friends you can trust? Are you someone that others can trust in? What are some ways your trust in God has proved worth it all?


  1. Hey! Visiting from the GTW's link-up.
    Oh, I learned a lot about trusting God last year. I've also been learning that while it's wonderful to have friends and family members who I can trust, I don't want to put my trust in them, meaning I don't want to let them hold my happiness. That belongs to God. :)

    1. About the controlling happiness, definitely. It's amazing how much a quick comment of someone's can make or break a day. The good thing is that God loves us even when others don't. And He's perfect and doesn't make mistakes. :)

  2. I know that it's great to have trustworthy friends, and I like being trustworthy—and I mean, even if God sometimes feels shady, you also kind of have to work with him and figure out how that trust works. It's fascinating, really. Anyway, you make a great point: trust is a nice thing to have, all around. :)

    (Visiting from the GTW linkup, by the way. Nice to see your post!)

    1. Yes, it's great to be trustworthy and have trustworthy friends. One awesome truth about God is that even when we don't seem to feel Him, He's still there. He'll never leave us (Hebrews 13:5). :)
