The Plan of Redemption: Trust Jesus

Trust (verb) “to trust, rely on, make strong and safe.” Trust (noun) “reliance on the veracity, integrity, or other virtues of someone or something; religious faith,” “help, confidence, protection, support,” “comfort, consolation,” “to believe, trust,” “be firm, solid, steadfast,” “reliability, trustworthiness; trustiness, fidelity, faithfulness,” “confident expectation,” and “on which one relies.”

Trust is not my strong suit. It isn’t for any survivor. In fact, trust is repeatedly violated by the abuser. In my fight to move from victim to survivor to thrivor, I needed to learn healthy definitions of words that had been twisted and manipulated beyond recognition. A discussion for another day.

I’m endeavoring to learn to Trust Jesus. He is who He says He is. He is able to do what He says He will do. He is painfully honest; the truth will set you free. I need to learn what me trusting Jesus looks like. He laid it all out in the scriptures: Follow Him; obey the commandments; love as He loves. A lifetime of learning and practicing. ~ Laurel Hawkes
