Heart Trust


Has a person

broken your heart?


Crushed you



And as a result

have you determined


that you can’t possibly

trust your heart

to God?



you guard your heart


for fear

that He will disappoint


just like people have


But He calls out to you

as a faithful lover would


A faithful lover


He pursues you



And you gently learn

that your circumstances


don’t determine

His love for you


And that God,

your faithful One,

will hold you


in those circumstances


That He does not leave

nor forsake


And you find

that in trusting Him

with your heart



that He is the One

who wraps you

in His sheltering arms


When people

can’t be trusted

with your heart

The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and He helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise Him.

– Psalm 28:7 (NIV)


Our hearts erupt with joy in Him because we trust His holy name.

– Psalm 33:21 (VOICE)


Trust God from the bottom of your heart;
don’t try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
He’s the one who will keep you on track.
Don’t assume that you know it all.
Run to God! Run from evil!
Your body will glow with health,
your very bones will vibrate with life!
Honor God with everything you own;
give Him the first and the best.
Your barns will burst,
your wine vats will brim over.
But don’t, dear friend, resent God’s discipline;
don’t sulk under His loving correction.
It’s the child He loves that God corrects;
a father’s delight is behind all this.

– Proverbs 3:5-12 (MSG)


Be strong. Take courage. Don’t be intimidated. Don’t give them a second thought because God, your God, is striding ahead of you. He’s right there with you. He won’t let you down; He won’t leave you.

– Deuteronomy 31:6 (MSG)
