Random afternoon thoughts….

It’s been a while since I’ve made a post, and I owe it all to mom brain. Lol. It is beyond strong lately. I hope you all are doing well, given the ridiculous 2020 season….it’s not a year, it’s a whole dang season of life right now.

Lately I’ve been doing a Bible study on 1 & 2 Kings, and it’s got me to thinking a lot about trust. Especially given everything that is going on in the country right now, trust is a pretty heavy topic. This year has been full of loaded questions that do not have easy, off the top of your head answers. So I’ve been giving a lot of thought to the process. How do you begin to trust something? Do you feel you can trust others more easily? Or do you struggle with even letting someone knock on the door of your inner most safe space?

I know for me, the latter is more true. It’s truer now than it ever has been before in my life. I find myself questioning everyone’s intentions, everyone’s comments…literally everything someone does or says, I question the majority of it. I’ve had a few issues in life that have made it harder to trust, but I am beginning to overcome these issues.

So my question is, have you ever given much thought to trust and how we learn to trust? What changes that decision to “not trusting”? Do the current world situations change the entire idea of trust for you? I want to know your thoughts on the topic.

Are you listening to understand others, or are you choosing to be selective in what you hear?
