Trust was a word that was a large part of our actions and relationships, but today that word has seemed to vanished. It was, and is, a necessary part of ourselves and how we deal and interact with those around us.  We can relate to many examples of trust from the young child standing by the swimming pool and the mother saying, “Just jump, I’ll catch you.” A friend saying, “Don’t worry,  I always got your back,”  and a spouse saying “Honey, don’t worry everything is going to be alright. Just trust me.”  Yes, that lost friend, saying nothing, not even a word, ……and just doing something. Forgive, forget and repair the distance that has come between you.

We may not realize it , but the days are getting longer, and the years are getting shorter. And what are we doing for our part? Are we struggling to get it organized and not knowing where to start. Repairing and dealing with “stuff” on so many fronts: all from neglect and not making the time, (Rock and Sand.)  But most importantly, filling the thirst within us that is so dry. The thirst that evades us. The thirst that is part of all of us. How do I do it? That feeling of not being satisfied, frustrated, always something coming at me. No Peace!  Please help me!

It’s that something that was in our society that now is gone, and the guardians of its void, are always there to thwart its return. Quickly making sure it does not enter back into our society as it once was. What is needed is having and knowing the presence of  our God in our lives, our Creator, as the center of our life. This time of the passing of Billy Graham, and seeing his history, the crowds and the examples of the many looking to quench their thirst,  shows us the different world we live in today.

So I am going to ask that questions again, what are you going to do about it?  It starts with you, and me, realizing the void, the thirst we are looking to quench, and it starts with trust. It is what we were made for. Trusting in the Lord and knowing that He knew and loved us before we were made. Knowing that He loves us more than we can comprehend. You do not have to go to Him for that Love;  He will come to you. Trust and know the Love and the peace that comes with it.  Take 5 with Him everyday. “Friend Him.” Watch and be patient.  And yes, you might see Him if the person crying out for help on that street corner or underneath that overpass, when you stop and see what you can do.  And maybe, its just listening  to him. You may be his only friend.  Thank him before you leave (he has not heard anyone thank him in years), tell him to keep smiling, as God loves you! And yes, the thirst you’re looking for, will be filled many times over. Cherish and protect it. Let it fill you up until you feel your chest is about to explode.

Show them who you are!

” Joy is unspeakable.  Faith is unsinkable. Love is unstoppable.”

Anything is possible!  “We were made to thrive.” Fill that heart with Love.

Simply stated, Love.

” Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy,

it does not boast, it is not proud.

It does not dishonor others. It is not self-seeking,

it is not easily angered, it keeps no record

of wrongs.

Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with

the truth.

It always protects, always trust, always hopes,

always perseveres.”

(1 Corinthians 13:4-7 NIV

An Apology

An Apology

Instead of an apology, when the words “I’m sorry” are too difficult to find,

sometimes it may not be necessary.

The response—I love you is all that is needed.

Prayer of Abandonment.


I abandon myself into your hands;
do with me what you will.
Whatever you may do, I thank you:
I am ready for all, I accept all.

Let only your will be done in me,
and in all your creatures –
I wish no more than this, O Lord.

Into your hands I commend my soul:
I offer it to you with all the love of my heart,
for I love you, Lord, and so need to give myself,
to surrender myself into your hands without reserve,
and with boundless confidence,
for you are my Father.

Charles de Foucauld
