Proverbs 11:13

A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy man keeps a secret.

I have found myself to be very slow to trust people because of past hurts and conflicts. However, I am giving that one up to the big man and he is giving me the confidence in myself so that I may confide in others.
If you put and empty bucket under the faucet and let the water drip in, it will take a very long time to fill. Each little drop is so important but without a heavy flow, it will be difficult to fill the bucket to the top. However, If you knock the bucket onto its side, the water will instantly flow out and you will have to start over with one little drop at a time to fill it again.

One of the most important things in a person's life is trust. That may be trusting yourself, friends, or family but, we all need some sort of trust. Without trust, we cannot confide and share out lives with others and that is not a good life at all. However, trust is one of the easiest things to lose and the hardest to gain.

Our lives are like the water and bucket, we are pouring ourselves into relationships that require a lot of trust. If we mess up, it is like we just knocked the bucket over and all trust is lost and to rebuild the trust it will take a while just like the droplets of water filling the bucket.
Keep them full.
Trust God. Trust others. Trust yourself.

I think it is time to get real, honest, trustworthy, and trusting.
Why live life afraid to share it with others. Life is meant to live.
