THOUGHTFUL MOMENTS AND TRUST
Welcome to Day 5 of #write31days. The Five Minute Friday Free Write prompt for today is the word trust. When I was at the lake I loved sitting out in one of the Adirondack chairs. Every day was a beautiful feast for the senses. Even when it was foggy or cloudy there was always something to see or hear. With nature as a backdrop it was a lovely place to just be together. It was a place full of thoughtful moments where we – my husband, 2 sons and a friend –trusted one another with our heartfelt thoughts.
We all need a person we can turn to, who will be there for us. When we are struggling we often need someone who is willing to listen. It is not even necessary for them to speak. Maybe we just need someone to sit with us for awhile.
Cup of tea in hand
I sit by the peaceful lake
Grateful and relaxed
Won’t you join me here
You don’t even need to speak
Just enjoy the view
God will meet us here
As together we commune
In mutual trust
WHO CAN WE TRUST
Often we have trouble trusting a person if they have deceived us in the past. Some people have lots of doubts about people they don’t know very well. And, of course if someone is dishonest we have a hard time trusting them.
What happens when people feel like they can’t trust anyone? How can we live in harmony if we don’t trust those we deal with daily? Where there is a lot of mistrust, there is also fear and anxiety. If relationships are not built on trust, they will not usually last long.
One thing we can do no matter what our circumstances is put our trust in God. He is faithful and will enable us to live in peace.
Isaiah 26:3-4 (NKJV)

*I have to admit that I may take longer than five minutes on some of these posts. But the words come freely as I write. I take more time with haiku, so they are not included in the free write category.*
