If Only...

Difficulties catch us up in a cycle of second-guessing ourselves.

When unexpected trouble comes, we sometimes question the goodness of God. We may even feel the despair that Martha & Mary experienced when their brother died. Oh, if Jesus had only come when He first found out that Lazarus was sick. Like Martha & Mary, we don't always understand why hard things happen to us. But we can rest in the knowledge that God is working out His purposes for a greater good. In every circumstances, we can trust the wisdom of our faithful and loving God.

Father, You have carried me through hard circumstances before. Thank You for teaching me to trust Your heart of love even when I don't understand what You are doing in my life.

To trust God in the light is nothing, but to trust Him in the dark - that is Faith.
