Guest Blogger / Galilee's Thoughts on Trust

My experience with trust has been quite a journey.  I have a hard time trusting in the Lord and my family because I have allowed control issues to over power and rule my life. 

I have trouble trusting God because I don't like some of the things he has allowed in my life and my warped thinking...I don't like who He made me to be. 

I don't always trust my family because I don't like some of the challenges they give me.  I have always struggled with trusting my parents authority over me. 

I am embarrassed by my behavior.  I don't like that I lack trust. 

I think my life would go much smoother if I just trust in God's plan for my life. 

Not trusting my family has damaged my relationships with them.  The lack of trust has brought me loneliness and separation.  I need to let go of warped thinking and let go of the need to control.  I need to give the Lord complete control of my entire life.

The trick is finding people who are trustworthy.  My parents are trustworthy...even though they are flawed.  We all are.  They seek the Lord.  God will lead their hearts and their choices. 

If I am having a fight with God...then why would I trust the people who are pointing me to Him?

It's hard to admit that I need help because that makes me vulnerable.

These are my thoughts on trust
