Tis so sweet...

First of all I want to thank all of you that wished me a happy birthday on facebook yesterday. Each message meant so much to me! We celebrated my 25th birthday Tuesday night by going to see Wicked (thank you Mom and Dad)! I have wanted to see it since my senior year in high school so it was definitely a long awaited treat. Some sweet friends happened to have tickets for the same night and they took us out to eat before the show at Maggianos. It was an absolutely perfect night!

On another note and at the risk of being a little bit of a downer, I have been having a hard time with something lately. Those of you that know me well know that I am a very positive person. I almost always see the glass half full and can't stand it when all people do is complain. I am also VERY trusting. I wear my heart on my sleeve and assume the best of people, especially those closest to me. No, I don't expect anyone to be perfect, just trustworthy. It feels like lately I have been let down by so many people. Some close to me, some not so much, but either way each time it has hurt. While thinking about this last night it suddenly occurred to me why this keeps happening. Why my heart has been broken over and over. I am putting my trust in PEOPLE. The only One that I should really be putting my trust in is God. I mean I think you should be able to trust those that you love. I don't think simply being human excuses us of being untrustworthy or just plain unthoughtful or mean. I think it's a fine line though. When other people let us down we shouldn't let that completely ruin our day or determine our worth. That's what was happening to me. Each time someone hurt my feelings or didn't follow through with what they said they would I completely took it to heart. I was feeling completely worthless.

My Jesus loves me. I am important to Him and He will never let me down. My trust needs to be placed in Him. 

’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus
by:Louisa M.R. Stead

’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
And to take Him at His Word;
Just to rest upon His promise,
And to know, “Thus says the Lord!”
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
O for grace to trust Him more!

O how sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to trust His cleansing blood;
And in simple faith to plunge me
’Neath the healing, cleansing flood!

Yes, ’tis sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just from sin and self to cease;
Just from Jesus simply taking
Life and rest, and joy and peace.

I’m so glad I learned to trust Thee,
Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend;
And I know that Thou art with me,
Wilt be with me to the end.
