"Nope, nu uh. I'm not doing it." David said, crossing his arms.
"But why not? You do realize that you brought this up, right?" Jesus asked, dragging the question.
David looked at the ground and frowned. It was very idiotic to bring up to Jesus that he did not trust Jesus was "making" him do a trust fall.
"Jesus, You do know that this is not useful at all...right?" David asked.
"How do you know that?" Jesus asked, smirking.
David sighed and turned around.
"Jesus, that's the thing...I didn't know that you were going to do this...You know that I hate trust falls, the person behind me always drops me. Even after they catch me, they just drop my head after my fall. Remember how I had to go to the hospital because of this stupid stunt?"
Jesus did not seem moved by David's almost convincing arguement.
"Do you want to trust Me or not?" Jesus asked, stretching His arms out.
David sighed frustratedly and turned back around, crossing his arms again.
"How do I know that You won't drop me? You're too far away from me and-"
"Hush, David. Simply fall back and let Me do the rest."
David was moved by Jesus' Words and he closed his eyes.
"Do You promise that you'll catch me?" David asked.
"Fall back and see for yourself," Jesus said softly and patiently.
David huffed. He clutched his crucifix; what if this wasn't Jesus? What if this was the devil in disguise, and if he did fall back, he would fall in to hell instead of his hardwood floor?
"Jesus, I trust in You..." He mumbled to himself five times.
Finally, he fell back. He panicked slightly when he felt his body almost touch the ground, but he felt strong and secure hands on the back of his shoulders. He opened his eyes and saw Jesus smiling at him.
"See? I knew you could do it," He laughed, lifting David to his feet.
David, still bewildered, stared at Jesus' Hands. Jesus put His arm around David and said, "See that small demonstration of your trust in Me? If you show more of your trust for Me, know that you can do many good things! For the person who trusts in Me is never disappointed."
When you trust Him, you will not be disappointed!!!
Believe me, I'm still working on trusting Him...trusting on others and being disappointed has brought me to the point of trusting Jesus being a difficult thing, but I know that all things are possible! There is always hope, even for the hopeless!!!

And He hasn't let go yet.
Thank you.

I love reading your work. I have had conversations like this with the Lord myself. :hug: please write more. (Then gather them all in a book and publish them cause the world could use these)

this is a beautiful written verse.

Trust is something we all need it can be difficult but if you believe the lord will always be there for you. even David had times where he doubted in the lord.

Praise the Lord.

That is so cool it's like most Christians walk with Christ we give him something to hold and trust with but others we still want to hold on. I really like this a lot.

But this is lovely.
