Trust and Faith

There are times when everything can seem too much. It might be a major project at work, it may be a family drama, it might be when your town is under fire in a war or, as in my case, it may be a health matter. I was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) in April 2015.

Sometimes, everything does indeed seem too much. So many opinions, so much advice, changes in physical capability.

I have learned that the only way to manage this condition, and to heal myself, is to have complete trust. I have learned that when I trust people then amazing things happen. I guess it is about letting yourself be open to people and their ideas, however different they may be to yours.

I have faith that God will take care of me and my family. Without this I would be lost.

Over the past few months, I have seen incredible kindness, and my faith in the human spirit has been strengthened.

In most human endeavours, we are usually dependent on others to achieve a shared goal. While there may be strategies and plans, things only work out when there is real trust.

  1. Andrew, I could not agree more. Everything is about Trust. It is responsible for saving soo much wasted energy and anxiety not to mention lives.
    If only we trusted more, we could kick out more Greed and Avarice and the world would be a much better place to be. Now that’s a thought!
