A Collection of Thoughts, Poetry & Praise
Good glue and a steady hand may/can reconstruct the broken vase. Good case of Godly sorrow and a touch form our God can help reconstruct confidence.Yet or however both will have points of weakness and they both may have a problem containing what is placed within.My desire is to be that one whom a friend can trust to hold what is said in an unglued container!Just my thought;Mervi
I don't believe this. I think absolute forgiveness is possible.
Mervi & Helen,Forgiveness and Trust wear two different hats. I have forgiven many but to completely trust them once again - well, that will take time.
Well said Sis. Hopper,There are those who have broken "trust" and that is something that is earned. It's a privileged,honor and responsibility to be trusted. And when that is broken, grace helps us to forgive and continue to love the offender, however we must use wisdom and know that some can not handle that precious gift of trust.
Sis. Hopper, I agree. My husband and I were just discussing this the other day. He said, "In the back of my mind, I can't help wonder if _______ will do "it" again. It's so hard to trust him." I felt the same way. We still love this person, have forgiven this person to their face and in our hearts, but...there's just this little nag that won't let us forget. And since we can't forget, at least for now, we still cannot trust...completely.Oh, how this truth makes me want to never break someone's trust. But...I'm afraid I may...because I'm human. Sigh...
Tena,I am so thankful that I can forgive but the trust factor with that person may never come. It is a sad state. Don't worry about yourself, you are 100% trust worthy. Why do I know? Because I've seen you in action, and heard your words.
