On Trust in God

Dear friends in Christ,

Has anybody noticed that when the going is easy, it is very easy to say "Trust in God", but when you actually have to rely on God because of changes in your life situation, it gets hard? It is in these moments which tell us how much we really do trust in God compared to just saying we do.

There are many things that come up in one's life. You can just reflect on your own life to know that. How often do we trust in God, and listen to Him? Trusting in God does not mean to do what we want to do, and then trust that God will bail us out! How many people pray to God after the bad investment, asking God to bail them out? The more important question: if God does bail you out, how often do you find yourself thanking Him afterwards. God's work is often thankless, but yet He still loves us, so He will continue to give us graces He knows we need.

What am I saying? Trusting in God is one of the hardest things we can do, but by doing it, we will find extraordinary amounts of graces given to us.

God bless.

Amen, Bobby! I've been unemployed for 2.5 months, have no savings, and my husband's part time job is barely holding things together while we drain our 401K! Prayers, please!
