Trust Muscles

August 27, 2019

 

I have a protocol for building physical muscle. 

 

I was taught to focus on one or two particular muscle groups and rotate my workouts to strengthen my entire body. 

 

One set at a time. 

 

The cycles are repeated two to three days per week and over time, results are noticeable.

 

Then I can add more challenging weights or exercises. 

If the workout is too strenuous, the result can be a pulled muscle or major injury. 

 

Then a new protocol is created to help the body recover. 

 

Slowly but surely, the new protocol leads to healing and the workouts return to the original rhythm. 

 

I recently created a protocol for myself to build my trust-muscles. 

 

Earlier in life, I could trust easily. I was “trust toned.”

 

As life progressed with challenges, heartbreak, trauma and relational mountains, I noticed my trust in others was not easy anymore.

 

It was extremely difficult. Even trusting myself was hard as I began to second guess decisions and labor over transition and change.

 

My recovery protocol was to build a wall around my heart others had to climb in order to prove they were trustworthy. 

 

Although my heart was protected, it was not free.

 

I wanted to be “trust toned” again.

 

My protocol began with reframing fear and self-doubt thoughts of mistrust.

 

It continued with soul food: music, nature, faith, rest and fun.

 

It went to another level with steps out of my heart comfort zone. 

 

Slowly, but surely, the wall came down and recovery took place.  

 

I am careful to not overdo the protocol expecting too much of myself. 

 

Now, when I look in the mirror, I see a “trust toned” woman with a heart open to the new adventures of life, love and dreams! 

 

Freedom.

 

One protocol.

 

One set at a time.

 

 

I will trust in Him and not be afraid. The Lord God is my strength and my song; He has given me victory.   Isaiah 12:2
