An Issue of Trust

The world is lying to you. It's telling you to do all sorts of things that will ultimately lead to your unhappiness and destruction. It's giving you terrible advice. It's forcing you to do things against your will. It's making you sacrifice your values. It's tearing apart whatever is left of the innocence you had as a child. It's telling you that you are not worth it, that you deserve to hate yourself. It's telling you that you're little more than a mere 1/6900000000 of  Earth's population....a fraction so small it rounds to 0. Therefore, according to the world, you are nothing...you simply don't matter.

The world hates you and will keep lying to you....and the best thing you can do is ignore it. Ignore its taunts. Ignore its doubts. Ignore its false flattery. Ignore its tricks. Just ignore it altogether.
‎"It is better to be the child of God than king of the whole world." - Saint Aloysius Gonzaga

As much as the world wishes to convince us otherwise, we got someone up there who loves us...regardless of how many times we mess up. We've got someone who thinks that each and every one of us is worth loving... even when the world chooses to hate us. Someone who thinks we're worth the time and effort...even when the world chooses to ignore us. Someone who will go through the trouble to correct us...even if the world would prefer to take advantage our own ignorance, pride, and other flaws. Someone who will push us to be what we were born to be...even when we doubt our own abilities. Someone who will protect us and watch over us as we stumble through life...even if we're the cause of our own falls. Someone who thought we were worthy enough to be born...even though we were born into a particular color, ethnicity, or income level. Someone who thinks we're worthy enough to live a full life...even though we aren't thin enough, tall enough, athletic enough, wealthy enough, etc. etc. etc according to the world's standards.

We've got someone up there who thinks we're worthy enough to stand up against the world and achieve goals  the world may never understand. We've got someone up there still thinks we're worth saving...and he wants us to be happy for all eternity. He stands by us even as we falter, even as the world would rather push us down. He's here for us, waiting for us...and all we have to do is trust in Him.

Jesus, I trust in you.
