Who do you trust?


I was walking out of the dining room and saw what I thought was a small piece of paper on the carpet.  
I bent down to pick it up and it was just a very tiny reflection of light coming from.....
I have no idea where!!!
Almost immediately the thought came to me that I had been deceived.....
what I thought was one thing was something entirely different.

Has that ever happened to you?
Have you ever been deceived by a family member.....
or somebody you thought was your friend?
Have you ever opened up your heart and allowed somebody in.....
and then after all was said and done you wished a thousand times over you hadn't been so truthful and honest?
Has somebody ever led you to believe one thing about them.....
when they had lots of hidden "secrets" they hoped you would never learn?
Is there somebody in your life who just lives to jab you with snide remarks and insults.....
sometimes very subtly.....
and other times in public?
Have you ever come to your own defense.....
and then wondered if that was the right thing to do?
Have you ever apologized and that apology was met with.....
silence?

What are your thoughts on all these questions I'm pondering in my heart today?

Breathing in Jesus,

Deb

  1. I've had all your questions in my life ~ I am so thankful that we have a God that hears our prayers. Life's journey is full of attacks from Satan, but we have a God that holds us and equips us to overcome...

  2. Well, Deb, after living 65 years on this earth I think I could answer yes to all those questions once! I fund myself pondering if I had ever treated others poorly and repenting of times I was not completely honest about who I am.....Depending on man or self leads to great turmoil, but depending on God brings peace. We can trust His promises always. He cannot lie. he cannot deceive...He is God!!
