Word of the Day

TRUST

Proverbs 3:5,6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Do not depend on your own understanding. In all your ways obey him. Then he will make your paths smooth and straight.

We had a game day in gym class today. We got to play a bunch of fun games like Duck Duck Goose, Tag and Tug of War. Tug of War was my favorite. That is where two teams would each grab the end of a rope and pull until one team is pulled across a dividing line.

 

Before we started, I looked at the rope, and I looked at the opposing team, and I did not TRUST that the rope was going to hold. It looked like a thin rope. I did not have confidence that the rope was not going to break.

I verbalized by concerned to my teacher. That means I told him I didn’t TRUST the rope. He assured me that the rope was dependable. I was a bit worried. I didn’t TRUST the rope, but I did TRUST my gym teacher! He had experience with the rope, and he was always concerned about our safety. I figured I could TRUST him.

Proverbs 3:5 and 6 says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Do not depend on your own understanding. In all your ways obey him. Then he will make your paths smooth and straight.”

Sometimes God asks us to do something and we don’t understand why. Sometimes he asks us to be nice to someone who is nice to us for example. We can’t understand why, but we can TRUST God that he is asking us to do it for a good reason. We can have confidence that he has our best in mind. I guess you can say that TRUST is the same thing as having confidence in someone.

Well, my TRUST in my gym teacher paid off. The rope didn’t break, and my team won the Tug of War!
