Seek the Truth with all your heart.
Trust is the essence of GOD’s kingdom. Our trust in GOD can be absolute, in which we can always be certain and have peace, free from all stress, worry, doubt, anxiety, and questioning. When GOD knows we trust HIM completely, HE has so much more for us.
Prayer is released in trust. To put all of your trust in GOD requires your freedom from selfishness, pride, and ego.
The more you trust in GOD, the more HE empowers you to do so which will also keep you in HIS peace.
Proverbs 3:5-8 ‘Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge – submit - to HIM, and HE will direct your paths – make your paths straight.

Psalm 1:1-6 ‘Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the LORD, and who meditates on HIS law day and night.

Not so the wicked. They are like chaff that the wind blows away. Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgement, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.’

Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for HIM; do not fret when people succeed in their wicked ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.
Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret, it leads only to evil.
For evil people will be cut off, but those who hope I the LORD will inherit the land.’

When no one else seems to understand you, simply draw closer to GOD. Rejoice and trust in HIM, HE understands you completely and loves you perfectly. As HE fills you with HIS Love, you become a reservoir of love, overflowing into the lives of others.
Come to GOD for understanding as HE knows you far better than you know yourself. GOD knows all your complexities; HE sees and knows every detail of your life, nothing is hidden from HIM. Do not be afraid of such intimate awareness, because HE views you through eyes of grace. Allow the Light of HIS healing presence to shine into the deepest recesses of your being – cleansing, healing, refreshing, and renewing you. Trust GOD enough to accept HIS full forgiveness and love which are at HIS very core, and which HE offers continually. GOD’s abiding presence will never leave or forsake HIS people. This great gift of a guilt free open door for you was paid for by Jesus.
GOD’s caring Holy Spirit is within HIS people as a resident tutor, comforter, and guide. If you have been deeply wounded - yield to HIS gentle touch, and be sensitive to HIS gentle prompting.
Romans 15:13 ‘May the GOD of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in HIM, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.’
