Trust

I had trust
Trust in many things
Trust in my parents
Trust in my siblings
Trust in my friends
Trust in the men of God
Trust in my school
Trust in my lecturers
Trust in a whole lot
Yes I had trust
And I believed in the things I trusted

I said I trusted God
But did I ever seek to know what that meant?
I said I relied on Him
And on His Word
I said I always put Him first
But then again I wonder

I said in my little head that I’ll do whatever He said
That I’ll go after he spoke
But did I always do that?

I thought I did
But I fooled myself
I had such confidence
In who I thought I was in Him
I carried my self-high and was proud of me

Then I saw the reality
I was not the perfect
or the good enough person I thought I was
I faulted in many ways
I trusted what men could do for me more
I relied on them being the people to act
More than He that directs them
I believed a great deal
But in many of the wrong things

Then I got heart broken
By who?
These same men I so trusted
They disappointed
Time and over
They promised and failed
They spoke words that gave a hint of light
And then they failed
Man disappointed me over and over

Then I remembered my Father
And as always ran back with my teary eyes
Asking Him to help me
To show me favor

I have been stubborn
I have been naive
I have done the right thing at the wrong time

But finally
I think I have learnt my lesson
Now I’ll go to God first
And tell Him to take care of the men he created
To make things work His way
And to help me trust Him more.
Today I know where I put my trust first

I'll put my trust in God.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,and do not lean on your own understanding. Proverbs 3:5

At certain points in our lives, I believe we often trust men more than God, but it's imperative to remember and understand that He is the supreme Being and the One whom we should place all and not some of our trust. 

He, His, Him - referring to God.

  1. Hummmmm, thought provoking for all ages, but but better to realise to trust God early in life.
