What is trust?

Trust is an invisible question mark hanging over our relationships. We ask: Can I trust you? Can I trust God? These crucial questions defy absolute proof, and haunt us with fear and worry. What should we do? We should also ask: Can you trust me? Can God trust me? Can I trust myself? These additional questions are important, because relationships are a projection of self, and trust is a self-portrait.
