He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? - Romans 8:32

Dear heavenly Father, sometimes the hard things in my life make me wonder if you are there or if you have good plans for me.  Then I remember this verse and think, "If you gave up your own Son for me, surely you have my best interest at heart. It's just that you haven't brought the "good" to its completion yet. Help me to practice my faith by waiting with sublime faith that you have everything planned for my good, instead of fretting and doubting and making others stressed with words and actions that come from my own anxiety.  Give me the strength I need to live above my natural inclinations. AMEN

God is working everything out for your good whether you enjoy peace from that thought or not. Cash in on the blessing of faith now.
