Definition of trust
1a : assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something
I’ve thought a lot about this over the last few months. Do you trust your kids? Do you trust anyone anymore?
Once that trust is broken it is very hard to get it back. If you ever can get it back. Even our children that have healed I’m always watching. Always checking up on them…..
Once that trust is broken I don’t think a person can ever get it back 100%…….. so how can we expect our children to completely trust us when that trust was broken time and time again……..
I think 1o years has gone by and surely our son knows that we are going to take care of him and surely he knows he will be fed. Yet he doesn’t have that trust.
I try to remember this as he struggles. I try to remember that his behaviors are out of fear. As I do remember this I believe it is the reason that I forgive him so quickly. I believe it is the reason that I am not ready to give up on him as hard as it may get.
There is someone that we can trust that will never let us down……….
We can put our trust in Jesus…… He will see us through……He will give us the strength that we need……
