Trust Him To Build My Life

Trust with blue markerI want to be trusted. In fact, the subtitle of my REALTOR title is to be a “trusted advisor”. I must maintain integrity, honesty and honor to be trusted. Included in this description is competency. I must know what I’m doing. I must do what I say I’ll do and be who I say I am. I am continually building my business and it’s all based on these deep values. I take keeping other’s trust very seriously.

Jesus takes trust very seriously as well. He compels me to trust Him. I came across a small passage of scripture that I’m not sure I’ve ever noticed before involving trust. Check this out…

23 Because of the miraculous signs Jesus did in Jerusalem at the Passover celebration, many began to trust in him. 24 But Jesus didn’t trust them, because he knew all about people. 25 No one needed to tell him about human nature, for he knew what was in each person’s heart. (John 2:23-24 NLT)

I read this and I began to wonder if the Lord trusts me. I do trust Him. I do try to order my life around His call upon my heart. I don’t think I’ve ever wondered if the Lord trusts me. I been overly concerned about my trusting Him. I want to be one of His trusted friends. I am Dad to five amazing kids. It is interesting to watch them grow and try things. It’s comical to think of the things that they tried that were wrong, but they tried to “get away with it”. It is a huge blessing to be able to put my trust in them. They are go where they say they are going. They give me reason to trust them. Yes, I’ve had trust with them broken.

Building trust is a delegate work in progress. It can take years to build and a millisecond to destroy. I want to keep building my life on the foundation of trust in the Lord. I love this song recorded at Passion 2017. It was written by Pat Barrett, Karl Martin, Matt Redman, Brett Younker.

Build My Life

Worthy of every song we could ever sing

Worthy of all the praise we could ever bring

Worthy of every breath we could ever breathe

We live for You

Jesus, the name above every other name

Jesus, the only one who could ever save

Worthy of every breath we could ever breathe

We live for You

Holy, there is no one like You

There is none beside You

Open up my eyes in wonder

Show me who You are

And fill me with Your heart

And lead me in Your love to those around me

I will build my life upon Your love

It is a firm foundation

I will put my trust in You alone

And I will not be shaken
