It may mean more to Jesus when we say, "I trust You" than "I love You"
How much easier is it to say "I love you" than "I trust you?" We say we love all the time, but what does it cost? What does it mean? How do we prove it? What are the risks? But to say I trust you, means we have an experience, a history, we have risked something, put ourselves on the line; it means we have the scars and the x-rays to show for our time in the field of our lives. "I love you" can be said at any time, for any reason, but "I trust you" only comes after falling together, knowing together.
