Ever wonder why it seems so hard to trust again?

I saw this video of The Real’s Adrienne Bailon floating around the web and I had to share it with you…

When someone has cheated, mistreated or wronged you in some way, it creates a wall and barrier of bitterness.  Believe me, I know it doesn’t feel good, but you CAN TRUST again. 

It just takes a little courage.

The bible says, “God didn’t give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.”  And that’s exactly what courage is; the spirit that enables you to face danger, pain or more importantly, what you fear.

So I started thinking… what fears do you have? What’s been holding you back in life?

FEAR supports false beliefs

You’re weak because you’re afraid. – NO. Fear is a biological reflex and we all have it. It only becomes weakness when you use it as a crutch.

Something bad is going to happen if I trust again. – NO, that’s the little scared you talking. Don’t listen to that voice. It’s not the boss of you!

You won’t be able to handle it. – YES, you will! You’ve handled situations much worse than this. Remember who you are and WHOSE you are.

You will be so uncomfortable. – GOOD! Being uncomfortable forces you out of your comfort zone where you need to be sometimes.

You can’t do it. – YES, you CAN and yes you WILL!

You will always feel this way. – NO, you won’t. You have the power to Change.

These are all the Lies of Fear!

Thinking you cannot do something is your biggest obstacle to not doing it. Fear knows this, that’s why it uses this dirty trick. The TRUTH is, you can do so much more than you think including having the courage to trust again.  

Not just trusting other people, but trusting yourself is the biggest accomplishment you can make.

The STRONGEST voice in your Life is yours! TRUST your voice and take a leap of faith for whatever your Dreams may be.   

Its never too late to live the life you’ve always dreamed about. You deserve the best of everything God has to offer. The best career, health, finances and relationship!

Just have the courage to trust yourself to make the right decisions. Its your turn..

You’ll love this video… Watch and Share it with someone who needs some courage!
