White lettering on black background says "Trust."

“Trust me,” said the con man.

“Trust me.”

“I can show you how to get something for nothing.”

“Trust me.”

“You can do crazy things, and I will protect you.”

“Trust me.”

“I can make all your dreams come true. I can grant your every wish. I can make you great.”

“Trust me.”


I don’t trust you.

I don’t trust you one bit.

I don’t want something for nothing.

I enjoy learning new things and expanding my horizons, but not to the point of risking my life or doing things that could harm others.

I’m not buying what you consider “great.”

I don’t trust you.

Get lost.

I’ve struggled in recent months to find the time and energy to write. A group of writers proposed writing something every day for the month of October, based on a one word prompt, and writing in just five minutes – no worrying about perfect grammar or always being poignant or well-polished. I’m giving it a go in an effort to jump start my writing. For the one word prompts, I’m going to follow along with The Upper Room’s Sight Psalms. They put out a picture a day and apply one word and a short reflection. If you are reading this, thanks for accompanying me for this experiment in motivation and discipline.
