Trusting God



"So don't be anxious about tomorrow.God will take care of your tomorrow too. Live one day at a time." Matthew 6:34 (TLB)


Patty Sears, from Indiana, remembers watching her dad slowly succumb to Alzheimer's Disease. Her dad was her hero - her father, her friend, her cheerleader, her everything. At one point in the aftermath of her father's sickness and death, Patty was so upset with God that she stopped praying. Full of anger, she broke her silence only to yell at God. and do you know what? God listened patiently to Patty. and so she talked to God some more the next day.

Trusting God amidst sorrow and suffering is difficult. Even now, Patty still has days where it is hard to get out of bed or where she feels like a hamster on a wheel - going through the motions, oblivious to her surroundings. Starting her mornings with prayer, a devotional, and some scripture helps to keep her centered. Her heartache remains, but with time and God's help, the pain of losing her dad has numbed and her relationship with God has grown.

Loss brings anger, confusion, and frustration. But her experience has taught her that God is with us - through big and small things. Our Creator is strong enough for our anger and patient enough for our questions.


Prayer: Dear God, we trust you with today and our tomorrows. Guide our paths, our decisions, and our hearts, in Jesus' name. Amen.
