If I cannot trust me, then who?

Trust,.If you do not have it, what you have is, insecurity, doubt, and most always disappointment.Trust though, begins with you! Proverbs 3:5-6
It is not always the other person trust involves, most times, if we think about it, it begins right at home! Within ourselves, and our thinking. We may try and blame other people, yet most time we need to look at us.

When you put your trust in anyone and they let you down, you begin to doubt your decisions and choices you make. Primarily because you trusted someone, who you should have been able too, and they let you down. If you do that, even a couple of times, you tend to lose trust in yourself and your ability to make right choices.

Other ways we lose trust in ourselves, when we are in a relationship, or have had an abusive parent, or relative. This could even involve sexual abuse, verbal abuse, and even physical abuse! We get to a point we start believing the abusive put downs, and beat downs as our fault. Thus we begin the journey of doubt, not trusting or even being trusting because we have taken upon us the life that was abused into us.

That is a wall that needs to come down. A veil that needs to be torn from the top down. A veil that God wants to take care of, if you will trust him with everything you have in you. People make mistakes, but they are not mistakes! We need to relearn to trust others by trusting ourselves. Realizing we too have made mistakes in the past. We may we have hurt some one we love by lying to them, or cheating a friend, or worse.

We can only come to that kind of trust, when we can trust the One who is trustworthy. God cannot lie. Titus 1:2, God is always faithful. Hebrews 10:23, God will never leave us. Hebrews 13:5. Trust comes from deep within. To trust again in yourself, you actually have to put your trust in someone else. That someone is God, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not to your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your path."
