A Song About Trust

My husband wrote a song in which he sings a verse that intrigues me. The verse says, “You become the expression of the power you trust.”

I ask myself, “Who, or what, power do I trust?”

Money, my job, my physical senses, electricity, anger, revenge, peers, seclusion, sleep, a set of rules, dieting, a lifestyle, my own plans, meditation…the list can go on.

I don’t really want to be an expression of any these powers. I want to be Cheryl, the expression of Love, Life, Truth, God. I want to trust God. Then I read in Science and Health, “Material wealth, fame, and social organizations have no authority or influence in the presence of God.”

So, I don’t have to “mistrust” money, my job, my physical senses …but every day realize the trust I have in God and my expression will be, me.

Inspiring person, Rosamond Carr
Not what I’d classify as a religious person, but spiritual, Rosamond Halsey Carr tells her story in her book, Land of a Thousand Hills: My Life in Rwanda. Published in 2001 and read by me last month, I recommend this book as a picture of woman’s self-realized independence, inner splendor, and ou

A star gymnast
Film, The Gabby Douglas Story (2014), captured many of the emotions that surely were experienced before medals were earned at the 2008 Olympics. Gabby’s family, already at a level of impoverishment, sacrificed for Gabby Douglas to continue training. And, although tempted, Gabby didn’t give up.
