Trust exercises are designed to help build confidence among colleagues, family members, ministry partners, etc., as they force people to trust others despite previous relationships and interactions. In engaging in trust exercises, individuals can begin to consider other people’s strengths and talents and dispel the belief that they cannot be trusted.
It takes time to build trust, but it can be broken quickly. Not only does a lack of trust hinder our relationships with friends and family but it hinders our relationship with God.
We face trials and difficulties every day, filling up our lives with distractions and worries that take our focus away from God. Stress and frustrations end up leaving us so overwhelmed so that when God does answer prayer and intervene in the situation at hand, we are so consumed with worry and doubt that we cannot see God’s goodness.
We are called to trust Him in all that we do, and with all of our heart. This means that we are always focusing on God and placing all of our concerns at His feet, as we believe that His way is better than our way. Wake-up every day and put your trust in God, and He will fill each day with goodness, grace and even more reasons to place our trust in Him.
“For the word of the LORD is right and true; he is faithful in all he does. The LORD loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love. By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth.”
