How to Have Trust in GodI will be the first to admit that it can be really hard to keep your Faith at times. Especially when you want something so badly but the opposite of what you are praying for is happening. We think to ourselves, why is this happening? Why is it that I am praying day and night for this to turn the other way and things just seem to be getting worse? I have had many of those conversations with God myself.
But the truth is, he is not ignoring us, he is working for us. He is doing things that we have no idea he is doing. We have to remember that God has our best interest at heart. He does not want us to struggle, but sometimes it is necessary in order for us to learn the things we need to learn. For change to occur. We might not realize how much a bad situation will benefit us until after it is over. At that time, we will then be able to see what that situation did for us in a positive way.
Right now I am dealing with a very difficult situation. In simple words, it SUCKS. Big time. But I know that there is a reason for this. I know that we will get past this and learn so many wonderful things. I will tell you one thing, because of this situation, the person who this is regarding is becoming closer and closer to God. His Faith is growing daily and his "wanting" to learn about God has become extremely strong. If it were not for this situation, I do not believe it would have turned out that way.
And the thing is, prior to this incident happening, I would pray for this person. I would pray that he would get to know God and want to learn more about him. I prayed that prayer for a very long time. Never in a million years did I think that this was the way he was going to come to God, but my prayer was answered. And because my prayer was answered I know (no matter how bad things are at the moment) that the future is going to be bright and wonderful. That this is all happening for a specific reason.
I have learned to trust God in a way I never thought I could trust anyone. The way I look at thing is so different now than it was years ago. I have turned into a much stronger person over the past years and I know it is because I have created a relationship with God.
I just want you to know that even if your situation is bad, even if you do not understand why thing are happening the way they are, keep praying. God will hear your prayers. Have confidence and Faith and know that you will get out of the darkness and into the light when your time comes. When you are feeling scared or down find words of inspiration to read. Do not let others steal your joy. I know other people have a way of bringing us down, but by you not giving into that, and by you showing your Faith, you will prove to other people that holding on and receiving the impossible is very possible.
Here is one of my favorite bible verses about faith:
He replied, "Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you. "
When I read that I say to myself, Faith as small as a mustard seed. I have so much more Faith than that. If I can move a mountain with such small Faith, imagine what can happen with a whole bunch of Faith!!
