My Lord says ... Matthew 28:16-20


16 The eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had ordered them. 17 When they saw him, they worshipped, but they doubted. 18Then Jesus approached and said to them, 

“All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 
19 Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. 
And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.”

Never Break the Trust Given to Us
In any relationship, we often say this, “I don’t trust you anymore,” when we feel betrayed.  The emotional outburst we express to someone, whether he or she is a family member or a friend, is incredibly inexhaustible because of the great pain and anger we have felt caused by someone’s  selfishness.  There is already a doubt in us as to how sincere a person can still become especially, if the same person has repeatedly betrayed us during the relationship.  There is a need to ponder about the reasons behind such actions.  Both parties can have their respective reasons, but one can’t justify the means by which the ends will just result to injustice  to the other party.  Another thing to consider is putting ourselves to someone’s shoes which is a way of giving our heartfelt consolation to ease the pain being felt by the aggrieved party at that moment.  Next, moving on is not as easy as learning the truth about the betrayal because it takes time to heal the wounds. In spite of this, we should think that it’s not the end of the world yet for us.  With the guidance and comfort of  family members, other friends, and community, they can help us  go through the stages of healing.  But the most powerful source of help that we need to seek is prayer.  It’s up to us to continuously seek our God the Holy Spirit for wisdom, strength, endurance, and guidance, not only during the weakest moments of our life, but throughout our everyday decision making.  We can doubt other people, but not the power of the Almighty God.  Never break the trust given to us for it will test our sense of responsibility and direction in life.  Remember, life is what we make it, but let’s make our life worth it to live by.  

" I will sing of your salvation. In you, O Lord, I take refuge; let me never be put to shame. In your justice rescue me and deliver me; incline your ear to me, and save me. Be my rock of refuge, a stronghold to give me safety, for you are rock and my fortress. O my God, rescue me from the hand of the wicked. For you are my hope, O Lord, my trust, O God from my youth. On you I depend my birth; from my mother's womb, you are my strength. My mouth shall declare your justice, day by day your salvation. O God, you have taught me from my youth, and till the present I proclaim your wondrous deeds."

Psalm 71:1-2, 3-4a
