I don’t trust people a whole lot.
But, it’s okay.
Look, I have let others down, heck I have let me own self down. This doesn’t mean I don’t or didn’t care. It just shows my humanity.
My intentions are never to go out with a plan to harm anyone. Yet, it happens.
So, who then? Who can I trust?
Man will let me down. And if my foundation is laid upon them only, I setting myself for a fall.
But knowing that in this world I will have trouble - and realizing: “ahh, I am not of this world”.
Psalm 118:8 advises me it is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in people. Cursed are those who put their trust in mere humans. (Jeremiah 17:5)
Now, now, I am not saying never trust anyone. However, not wise to put your “all” in anyone before seeking the LORD FIRST!
I wish I had followed that advice in my younger years.
And... this includes all areas. Sometimes, as a business owner... I segment that part out of my faith-life.
Nope! Not how it works. GOD must be in all corners of my life. I must trust HIM, and HIM first.
Not easy stuff. This is where the rubber meets the road, so to speak.
I either choose faith - or I choose to rest in my own will.
News flash: GOD’s will is always the perfect way to go!
Will it be uncomfortable at times? Heck yeah!
But once again, I remember, when GOD brings me to it - GOD brings me through it!
And frankly, Faith always has me being a “land on my feet type of girl”
I am Deni, short for Denise. I grew up in a Jewish home, in a Jewish neighborhood and a Jewish family. In 3rd grade we moved. We moved to a mostly non-Jewish area.... that is where JESUS found me. I say found me because I yet had not acknowledged it, but would find out later.......by grace, HE HELD ME ALL ALONG, just a lil Jewish girl from Philly.
