Learning to Trust Again

Learning to Trust Again

What is one to do when your trust has been shattered? Perhaps you’ve been victimized by infidelity, abandoned by a neglectful spouse or perhaps even lied to be a friend. In each of these situations you may want to learn to trust again and yet naturally, you wonder if that is the wisest thing to do. In some situations you would be well-advised to be cautious. In other circumstances you will be able to talk through your pain and rekindle a trusting, loving relationship. No matter what, you cannot carry unforgiveness around without it causing you emotional and spiritual turmoil. Remember these words from Scripture: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight” (Proverbs 3:5-6).
