Removing The Splinter

by | Jul 26, 2022

Trust is hard. Especially when you have tons of life experience and circumstances that have led you to believe trusting is unsafe. That’s the thing though, people and God are not the same. People have the ability let you down in one way or another. People can break your trust.

But the Father can’t and He never will. Trusting Him is and always will be safe, even when it’s scary.

I’ve been right on the brink of walking through something that I know ahead of time is going to be painful and hard. So naturally I’ve been avoiding it ???? Honestly, I’ve been doing “just fine” without opening that closet of suppressed memories and emotions. However, a great friend of mine recently reminded me that there is freedom on the other side. She told me that it’s like a splinter. Sure, I could probably live with it forever just fine but why not take it out and heal that spot? That’s exactly what the Father wants for me, full and complete healing. Not just in my body, but in my mind and heart.

It all comes down to trust.

I don’t have to rely on what I’m feeling, what I’m afraid of or what I don’t understand. In fact, the Bible tells me not to rely on those things. Instead, I’m called to trust in Him completely.
