We must trust in all times the good, the bad and the unknown. It is easy to trust in our faith and our God when the skies are striking and beautiful and all is right with the world and we know our place in it. It is difficult to trust when the grass has grown up around the good we thought we cultivated in our lives and it seems to be trying to choke out that goodness. It is a challenge to trust and hold on to that faith when it has been shaken and the ground below no longer feels steady like it once did.
God never promised us that this life would be easy. God only promised that if we seek Him out, form a relationship with Him, ask for our sins to be forgiven and love Him that through His son Jesus Christ we may have eternal life, if He so grants it. Eternal life is the most important part of existence. However, the here and now must also be lived. It is the here and now that seems so perplexing at times. The trust and faith in God are what will get us through the here and now to the then and there.
The foundation of our faith is formed from the love of God and relationship we have with Him. Do not let a day go by without talking to God and letting Him know you are His. The deeper this relationship becomes the more integrated our lives and existence is with God. When our faith becomes intertwined with our lives then nothing can separate us from the love of God.
It is in the times of uncertainty we must cling even tighter to our faith. When nothing else is there we will discover that God has never moved. Trust, have faith, pray and know that God will get you through all times to bring you one day into His eternal grace of heaven.
