When you’ve been hurt by a person or organization that you trusted, you want to recoil and protect your heart. The hurt cuts even more painfully close to the core when your parents or family members are the ones who hurt you.
The easy way would be to put up walls and blame “trust issues” for your intentional isolation. But this can become an excuse for not wanting to heal.
God wants you to heal. And that will require some vulnerability on your part. But make sure you’re trusting what is TRUSTWORTHY first.
Before you trust again, or before you ask someone with “trust issues” to trust you, keep in mind these two mistakes that cause 99% of “trust issues.”
“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.” – Jeremiah 17:7-8
