“May the Just One set me straight, may the Kind One correct me, don’t let sin anoint my head. I’m praying hard against their evil ways!” Psalm 141.5
At some point in every decision, I find myself forced to trust somebody or something. Often I desperately try to find any alternative that does not have this fact, forgetting that this will mean that I will trust myself! Trust is in the middle of everything we do.
Living on the edge, striving to get the most out of life often requires even more trust. The good news is that we grow more rapidly and excel in ways we did not thing possible when we follow the advice of a coach, mentor, guide, or good friend. I find myself using this approach in work, relationships, and sports. The question is for all of is who do we trust? Do we trust ourselves (hard to blame), others (what are their agendas), or God (do we know what He might do)?
Earlier this year I made a fresh decision to trust God in ways that are far deeper, more intense and complete, than ever before. The decision was not one lightly or quickly made. The choice came after a lengthy struggle with my soul to understand what I really wanted out of life. The questions I faced included – Who do I trust and why? Where do I see myself going? How do I think I can get there?
Making the decision and executing the decision are not automatic, at least for me. What my mind wants and what my body strives for are usually at odds. The struggle continues through today. Who do I place my trust in and why?
I find a tendency in our decisions to procrastinate on making the choice. My own experience concludes that a lack or delay in making a decision causes severe damage to your self. You and I face a choice at the beginning of each day – what we do with is the primary indicator of our potential health for that day.
