Just a word out to those who feel alone, afraid, forgotten, or unforgivable…I have felt these things many times before as well. I still struggle with these feelings although I am “supposed” to be an example of Christian maturity and growth. But you know what? Tough. I feel what I feel, and I can’t pretend that I don’t, and I’m tired of trying to pretend . It is exhausting. The good news is that God doesn’t want you to pretend either, He desires, and welcomes, your honest feelings. He knows them anyway, and He knows the harm of keeping them hidden inside. I am well aware of the danger of letting some into our hidden areas of fears, secrets, and failures, because many will betray us and abuse our trust. God says “Come unto Me, and I will give you rest”; rest from our pretendings, our shame, our fears, and the dangers of trust. God knows you, he created you, and He loves you. He will “never leave you nor forsake you”, He is your “rock and your fortress”. He is well aware that you are afraid to trust Him, many have been, many still struggle with trusting Him (me). But He has promised to be with us, and listen to us, and to catch us if we fall. Let’s make a deal…you pray for me and I will pray for you, and together we will enjoy God’s safe and loving grip. Love in Jesus from us at Mosaic.
God of Trust
