On Fridays I try to join The Gypsy Mama.  She gives a word prompt and those participating write unedited for 5 minutes…no editing can be a challenge!  Today’s word is TRUST.


It starts with reaching out…with an open hand.

This thing called trust cannot really be experienced with clinched fists and closed eyes.

No…I have to open my eyes to things and people around me. 

I have to open my hands to grasp the hand of another.

I have to open my HEART and know that HE will protect me…ALL of me.

But I have to trust him.  I have to LET him.

So often, I want to protect myself from any hurt, so I close my heart.  I most certainly close my hands…I am not going to allow ANY hurt to get inside.  CLOSED EYES.


What good comes from closed?  Not much…

trust someone with my heart.  trust someone with my feelings.  Trust someone with a secret.  I might get hurt…

I don’t want more hurt.  I want protection.  I want safety.  I want…

there it is again…the “I” thing.  He asks me to trust HIM…and I will.  One more day, one more hour…once more I will relinquish control and give it to him…trusting HE knows best.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart;
      do not depend on your own understanding.
 Seek his will in all you do,
      and he will show you which path to take.
Proverbs 3:5-6
