It’s easy to trust in God’s goodness when things are going well. But when life takes a turn for the worse it can feel as if God has forgotten us, doesn’t see us, or worst of all, doesn’t love us.
Dear God, help me trust you when I don’t understand
or like what’s happening in my life.
Teach me to be gracious and agreeable
when things don’t go as I planned.
Remind me that you love me and are with me,
even if it doesn’t feel that way.
Whenever something disrupts your plans today, reinforce your trust in God by silently repeating the phrase, “I trust you, God,” until you feel a sense of calm acceptance.
