I was with a fellowship group the other night. We were sharing scripture that had been influential in our week or summer or life and it's significance to us. As I listened to hearts being vulnerable I heard a common phrase. It is a phrase that I have said many times and heard throughout my Christian walk by many peers. I heard it in a new way and it irked something inside of me.
"I struggle trusting the Lord..."
I started thinking about Jesus sitting in the circle in my backyard with us and how he felt as he listened to his best friends, his sons and daughters share that the struggled with trusting in Him. How hurt would you be if you heard all of the people you love tell you that? You'd wonder what you had done wrong to not gain their trust, you'd wonder what it is about you and your personality and how you treat them that would make them feel that way.
The thing about Jesus is that He has never done anything to make us not trust Him. He has been nothing but majestic. His love is the ONLY love. Unconditional without fault and the only love that can truly be unconditional. He is there for us when we need Him and catches us when we fall. WHY would we not trust Him?
