Words of hope from an abuse survivor

Trust is the hardest word for me. I’ve lived a life in which everyone I trusted failed me. Now, I’m so afraid of being let down, I expect it. I hone in on broken promises when they happen and it crushes my world. The hurt I feel from a person whose word means nothing is so intense, it has the power to unravel me. Why can’t everyone say what they mean and mean what they say? Why?!

How is someone like me supposed to trust God? When no one else has ever been reliable, why should He be any different? I believe the word of God and it says that He will never leave us or forsake us, but I feel lost, alone, and forgotten in a sea of adversity with no end in sight and no one to TRUST!
