Have you ever been to a dance and actually danced with a partner?
With dancing there are a lot of things to remember. The steps. Where to place your hands. Which foot goes first. And much more.
But when you are dancing with someone there is one major thing to take into consideration. Trust.
Trust can be such a scary word, can’t it?
The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines trust as “assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something.”
That is so true in dancing. Because if you do not trust your partner to follow or lead you, the two of you will be fighting forces instead of treating each other as allies.
This is also true with life. If you do not trust someone, you will not fully hear what they have to say, you will fear them, and you will stay away from them as much as possible.
Trust is an action that takes work. You will have to work on letting someone else trust you. They will have to see you prove to them that you are trustworthy.
And if you break that trust, all the work you had accomplished turns into nothing.
Also, we must be careful what and who we put our trust into. If they are aligned with God’s Word, it is probably a good thing to trust.
Psalm 20:7 says that “Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.”
You can always place your trust in the Lord. No matter what.
Others may fail you, but He never will.
In His amazing love,
