Trusting the day

Posted by Simon Parke, 01 November 2018, 6.00am

I will trust this day.

I will trust what happens and the way it works out.

I will trust it comes to bless, and has no intention other than to hold me in its loving arms.

When I lose this trust my behaviour becomes most odd.

Sometimes I attempt to control situations and people or run around like a chicken in a panic.

Perhaps I fill my head with noise or my life with activity.

I may start the blame game with myself or others, become smug on my imaginary high ground or perhaps declare in loud despair: ‘It’s all going wrong, just like it always does!’

As I say, when I lose a sense of trust, my behaviour becomes most odd.

So I will trust today and all it brings.

For when it is so and the trust is strong,

All is quite perfect

And all is quite well.
