An Assessment of Trust

Practical Messages for Impractical Times

As a nurse, one of the most important assessments for us to perform on our patients is the Pain Assessment. We ask the patient if they are experiencing pain; if yes, then to rate the pain on the numeric scale from 1 to 10, with 1 being the least and 10 being the worst. The goal of decreasing the level of pain varies with each individual according to their condition.

As I read Psalm 27 and several verses from the 119th chapter, I realized that King David experienced many emotional highs and lows during his life. There were times when his songs reflected a strong trust in God alternating with insecurities as he pleaded for God to protect him from his enemies. If you were asked to rate your trust in God on a Trust Scale, would your numeric rating be dependent on whether you are faced with the fiery trials of life or if you experienced a peaceful day?

Building our trust in God requires action on our part, on a daily basis. It is an act of faith to believe that God will bring us through according to His plan. Regardless of our circumstances, God is available 24 hours a day-7 days a week. The goal of a Trust Assessment is a numeric rating of 1 which reflects that you trust God with every aspect of your life. Diligent study of the Word of God and heartfelt prayer provides us with the reassurance that God will keep His promises to take care of us.

Dear God, please help me to build my level of trust in you-knowing that you will never fail. Amen
