I received this prayer in an email today...

Father in heaven, thank You for making me righteous through the blood of Jesus. I trust that You have a good plan for me, and that You will deliver me out of all affliction. Thank You for Your strength and peace in my life. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

it got me thinking about trust. As children we put our trust in our parents and sometimes they fail us...then we put our trust in various family members who may or may not fail us...then in boyfriends/girlfriends, friends, and eventually spouses. If I look back on my life, I have been a very trusting person and unfortunately many people in my past have failed me. But, I have continued to still keep trying to trust in people. When others are struggling, either as adults or as children, you can often times look and see that someone has failed them and that the person is someone they can no longer trust. Trust is such an important trait for us and if their is no one to trust then we feel alone. Fortunately there is always someone we can trust and who will never let us down....JESUS! You can trust that He has a plan for you....He will not give you more than you can handle....He will always listen to you...He will always forgive you....and He will always love you. So, make sure that Jesus is on your list of people to trust...He won't let you down.
