In this world, our trust is shattered time and again by people. But there is One in whom we can put our trust in which we will never be let down. His name is Jesus. ❤️
I’ve had trust broken in the most intimate of relationships. It is a gut wrenching heartbreak when it happens. You’ve opened up your heart, let guards down, broken the walls of protection, only to be betrayed. Its excruciating. But there’s one place I never have to worry about that.
When I put my trust in Jesus, I am never disappointed. I am never let down. I am never belittled, betrayed, talked about, criticized. I am never made to feel insignificant, rejected, lesser than. I can pour out my heart in confidence that I will be met with the deepest of loves.
So why is it so hard for me to really just pour my heart out to Jesus every day? Mostly because of me. I don’t want to feel the feelings. I don’t want to rehash the failures of my day. I don’t want to admit that I need help. I don’t want to admit that I am a million miles from where I want to be. It really comes down to pride. But as with any sin, I am only hurting myself when I let that pride stop me from pouring out my heart fully to the Lord each day. Because when I do, I find everything I need.
There is peace, strength, courage, love, hope, victory, power, resilience, zeal, freedom, just to name a few, when I go to Jesus. He has every thing I need. He is everything I need. And when I pour out my heart to Him, and trust Him with my life, I am whole, and complete.
When I don’t, I suffer. My anxiety rises. My irritability increases. My tolerance is low. I am less forgiving. I am defensive. I am quick to speak and slow to hear. I am a mess. But the minute I just begin to pour a little drop out to Him, a “Lord I need your help!” the floodgates burst open when I am met with the sweetest love I’ve ever known.
So whatever it is on your heart. Whatever you are trying to do or fix on your own. Whatever you don’t want to rehash. Whatever you don’t want to say out loud. Whatever the weight on your shoulders today.
Give it up.
Trust in Him in all things.
And pour out your heart before Jesus.
You will find everything you need right there. ❤️
