Pebbles – Part 2 – It’s All About Trust

You may be wondering if I have lost my pebbles after reading my blog post on pebble throwing when i was a young girl. It’s not everyday you read about someone throwing pebbles into someone else’s mouth. I understand.

Inquiring minds want to know

Were the pebbles were clean?

How big were the pebbles?

What do they taste like?

I am happy to answer your questions

They were dirty, straight from the ground, very small and tasted gritty.

Truth be told, we were not very successful in getting many into each others mouth. I think we were more successful in making indentations and scratches on each others face.

We used to pull our bangs down to protect our foreheads, but it didn’t help our noses or the rest of our face. Now that I think about it, the teenage acne isn’t what left holes in my face – it was those little rocks!

Trust issues

When I think about my friend beyond throwing pebbles at each me, I think of a trustworthy friend. I could rely on and trust her with my deepest secrets; not sure how deep one can go at 11 and 12 years old. I guess these days, one can go pretty deep.

What is trustworthy?

The definition of trustworthy is “dependable, worthy of being trusted.”

Proverbs 11:13 says, “A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy man keeps a secret.”

Who is the most trustworthy?

God is the most trustworthy. He is the best at keeping secrets. I can tell him anything and the great thing about having a relationship like that is:
1. He’s never too busy.
2. He doesn’t gossip.
3. He always has a solution.
4. He loves me unconditionally.
5. I can trust Him with my life.

When you don’t think you can trust anyone else, look to the Lord and trust Him. He’ll be glad to be your confidant.

Let’s pray.

Father, thank you for your friendship and your selfless giving to all who call you Lord. I pray we always think of you as trustworthy.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.

In His Service
