“Trust Me, My child,” He says. “Trust me with a fuller abandon than you ever have before. “Trust Me, as minute succeeds minute, every day of your life, for as long as you live. And if you become conscious of anything hindering our relationship, do not hurt Me by turning away from Me. Draw all the closer to Me, come, run to Me. Allow Me to hide you, to protect you, even from yourself. Tell me your deepest cares, your every trouble. Trust Me to keep My hand upon you. I will never leave you. I will shape you, mold you, and perfect you. Do not fear, O child of My love, do not fear. I love you.”
Father God, forgive me for not trusting you with abandon. Teach me to trust you as a child trusts her parent to throw her into the air and catch her, or as the climber trusts his rope. Too often, I want to see the end of the path instead of trusting you to guide me for each and every step.
