But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.—Psalm 13:5 (KJV)
She says, he says, or we say…does it really matter at all? Although all commentary within a relationship has credence, what is also important is the trust that is between those involved.
What is trust but an: Assured resting of the mind on the integrity, veracity, justice, friendship, or other sound principle, of another person; confidence; or reliance.
One simply cannot discount the importance of trust or take it for granted. In a marriage or personal relationship, if love is the foundation upon which the building of a relationship is built upon…then trust is the cement that holds it together.
Far too many are trying to hold a relationship together when they do not really trust their mate. This is unfortunate because this lends to missing out on the beauty of a true God-Centered relationship. Here’s three points to ponder:
- Real trust has to be developed over time…it is earned but also given;
- You must trust if you want to be trusted;
- Let your trust of others start with your trust of God.
Personally, it is important to me to be able to trust my wife; but more important to me is whether she can trust me! It is my earnest desire to be found trustworthy of both my wife and my Lord.
