As you can see...it's Monday...NOT Friday...but, to be honest, this is the first opportunity I've had since Friday to sit down and really work on anything. For those of you who are wondering what 'Five Minute Friday' is and don't know...well...as our hostess, and inspiration, The Gypsy Mama, puts it, it's a time in which we write "For only five short, bold, beautiful minutes. Unscripted and unedited. We just write without worrying if it’s just right or not."
If you'd like to find out more or are interested in joining us for the next 'Five Minute Friday', then be sure and visit The Gypsy Mama today!
Now...for today's assignment...
Trust. I think we all probably have trust issues or, at least, have had trust issues in the past. Like it or not, the people we love the most seem to be the ones who know how to hurt us the most and, before we know it, we find ourselves fearful and hurting...unable to trust them like we used to...and, if we're not careful...after getting hurt over and over again...we find it hard to trust anyone. Hard as it is...the truth is...people are people. They're fallible and they make mistakes. They can be very hurtful...especially if they don't know the Lord and are operating outside of Biblical authority and, given enough time, they will fail you. That is to be expected. But there is One! Oh! There is One! One that will never leave you...never forsake you...never fail you...and His name is Jesus! If you're going to put your trust in someone...put your trust in Him!
"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths" (Proverbs 3:5-6).
