trust. five minutes.

This week's Five Minute Friday...  Trust


Go.

Memories of struggles. Hurt. Learning to trust.

How beautiful. Like riding my old, rope swing I've had since my childhood. How I know it will hold me up every time I sit down, swing my legs back and forth, and ride through the air.

Like having friends. Pouring out my heart.

The knowing. Believing. Hoping.

Like the hard times. Like winter. How I know that the warmth will return. Dead will come back to life. Beauty will arise.

Like my Dad holding me, kissing the top of my head. Secure. Safe.

Like trusting my Lord.

Learning to Trust. Him.

A Journey of Wonder. Beauty. Being swept away whenever I bare myself. Strip away the doubts.

And. Just. Trust.

Stop.

'being swept away' What a beautiful description of trust and what happens when we give all our worry away.
