Trust is a mighty word and Easter Sunday is a day for many that symbolizes the greatest Trust.
Roughly 2,000 years ago, Jesus of Nazareth caused the greatest shift in thinking in human history.
In accordance with the Christian faith, days after his crucifixion, came the Resurrection of Jesus.
To Trust that Jesus rose from the dead is also to believe that he granted eternal life to those who put their Trust in Him. Trust has always been a mighty word and with Trust in Jesus comes Hope for the future.
The problem with Trust is that it is a moment-by-moment choice. Once we have had our Trust broken, how easily can we Trust again? As we learn to not Trust, we harden to endure what would otherwise be interpreted as painful or hurtful. This disconnect from our feelings, is itself, isolating us from our life and everyone in it, including our own feelings.
Have you ever experienced how easy it is to have Trust when things are going well, and we can validate that our ability to Trust works in our favor? On the flip side, how easy is it to have Faith and Trust when things are not going well, and we are forced to make a choice between Trust and our own Will? Have you ever experienced anger, resentment and feelings of rebellion rather than Faith and Trust, when “things are not going as you would like”? This is an example of where we experience a “Fork in the Road” with our Trust. Expectations set us up for a barrier between ourselves and our Trust experience.
This EASTER SUNDAY is a special opportunity for us all to get out of the way of our own expectations and to establish an even stronger Trust in each other, the world and our future. Together we are many strong when we have Faith and Trust in each other.
With Peace and Love,

WOW… Doctor C., what a beautifully stated Easter insight ( that I just got to read 1 month and 1 week later! As always, better late than never, especially in this instance. ) The outstanding part, it is appropriate no matter when it is read. The key, is to make it applicable. Like the picture of you and your daughter shows Perfectly! It is a Perfect picture representing that Perfect saving grace we were All given. Thank You For Sharing.

Agree completely with Dr Cometa. If we cannot trust each other, what can become of our life? I love Proverbs 3:5-6, like Cindy wrote on this block. Thats one of my favorite verses of the Bible. And by the way I have it written everywhere, refrigerator, bathroom, desk, etc.
The most pure love we have was the sacrifice that Jesus did nailed on that cross. He came not to condemn, but to redeem us and give us eternal life. Jesus always was talking to love one another. I know is hard sometimes to love someone who hurt us, deny us, but even though, that is one of the Commandments. Happy Easter everyone and remember…He is risen indeed!
Yes, much easier to trust when things are going well! So, when things are NOT going well, in a big way, with Covid-19, and all that has meant: world wide shutdown, loss of jobs/income, massive amounts of illness and death, social distancing, fear and panic, and basically life as we have always known it come to a halt….where do we turn? Easter Sunday has reminded us of our hope and salvation, Jesus who has conquered death and sin that we might live abundantly on this earth and eternally in heaven. He is the only one that we can trust who will never let us down, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not rely on your insights. In all way acknowledge Him and He will make straight your path” Proverbs 3:5-6. I think there is always a “silver lining” to suffering and having this shutdown has removed everything that we have previously put our hope and trust in and has caused us to look up to Jesus. Things and people will always disappoint (even if not always intentional), but Jesus promises to “never leave us nor forsake us” Hebrews 13:5. Now this is GOOD NEWS is a Covid world! Happy Easter!
P.S. love the adorable pic of you with daughter and lamb!
Love this! We read all of your blog posts and incorporate much of what you suggest within our family. Thank you!
For many of us, we have found this “sheltering” a time of renewal. How appropriate that Easter occurs just at this time when our people and our country are so in need of a spirit of trust. Thank you for this beautifully composed rendition. My hope is that we will not forget this message; that our strength and trust will mirror that of the disciples and that we will make our world a place of love and peace for each other.
What a lovely and thoughtful blog, thanks so much. Happy Easter to one and all. We must trust that this, like everything else in life, will pass. Trust yes but be careful too
Beautifully stated. We need to Trust and Keep the Faith now more than ever. Stay safe.
Thank you Arianne for this beautiful insight. A friend of mine who is 92 year old, living on her own, still driving when we could go about, and who survived the concentration camp after seeing her family go to the gas chambers has this reflection to offer. She compared this time to the war with the difference that today with the Covid -19 virus one does not know where the “enemy” is. I wonder what she would say about trust?
That picture is one of the loveliest I’ve ever seen! Your blog comments are beautiful too. Trusting is definitely something we learn. When my granddaughter was a toddler, I approached to help her and she put her little hands on her hips and said defiantly, “No Gramma, I do it byself!”
I think that is ingrained in all human hearts. Learning to put our trust in the Lord Jesus is a process of letting go of our control. He is trustworthy, that I know for sure. Easter blessings to your family! Alice Ann
