Have you ever told a friend a secret and told them not to tell anyone because you were pouring your heart out to them and just needed a friend. Later when you were talking to another friend of yours they mentioned the same secret that you informed your friend not to tell to you. How did you feel? Were you hurt, where you angry or just plain disgusted that your friend broke your trust? We have all been here at some point and time in our lives.
Recently, while going through some emotional things and having a lot on my heart and mind I was asked why I didn’t talk to my go to person about my feelings and emotions. You might be asking what is a go to person it is a person that you confide in with your innermost secrets knowing that they are safe with them. You see, the reason why I didn’t go to my go to person is because I felt like I couldn’t trust them with my heart. I felt like the information that I had to share was so vulnerable that I just needed to know that I was safe.
While I was looking for a person to confide in and to share my heart with I was reminded of Psalm 55:22 which says “Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.” Then the Lord reminded me of another scripture Proverbs 3:5-6, which says “Trust in the Lord, with all thine heart and lean not unto your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge him and he will direct your path”. After reading this scripture God began to speak to my heart and let me know that while I was searching for a go to person on earth that God wanted to be my go to person.
God wanted to hear what was on my heart and I didn’t have to worry about him telling my secrets because he already kept them safe. I realized in this situation that it was time for me to trust God once again with my heart. It was time for me to give God my cares and know that everything was taken care of and to ask him to just renew my mind, my soul and just begin to restore me. I realized that I had put my faith and my trust in people that I still was left broken. I still was left in need. I still was left needing a drink and filling thirsty. God began to just speak and say the he needed me to trust that he will “give me water where I wouldn’t have to want or thirst again. He needed me to trust him like I never trusted him before but to know that when he healed me that I would have no broken pieces left. God needed me to allow him to just make love to me in all areas of my life.
Today I challenge you to trust God. I challenge you to just let God be your go to person in life. To just allow him to speak to your situation and know that everything is handled. I challenge you to just cast your cares on God and know that he is listening and that he has already worked things out. I challenge you to just let her be first priority in your life and in your decisions knowing that he will keep your secrets and that he will not scorn you but that he will love you like no other. I challenge you to just allow God to make love to you in every area of your life.
Until next time,
