Trust Defined

        During prayer before morning Mass today, I asked Jesus if I was being selfish when I trusted in him, dumped all my problems on him, and just sat back to enjoy his peace.  Then I realized that my trusting in God does not mean that I am no longer concerned about others with their problems and sufferings; it's that I no longer worry or get depressed over them because God has stepped in to unburden me.  So to trust is to let God take over, freeing me from holding the problems in my own hands.  Peace is merely the result of that trust and there is nothing selfish about enjoying that peace.
