If you trust God, you’ll never fear the unknown because you know that his light will guide you through the darkest nights. You know that his wisdom will help you when you’re lost. You know that his way may not be the easiest way but it’s the best way. It’s the only way that will protect you from what could hinder you and the only way that will protect you from what could harm you.
If you trust God, you’ll understand that you didn’t really ‘lose’ anything or anyone. God took things and people away from you for a reason. He knows when certain things have served their purpose. The messengers he sent you have taught you the lessons you needed to learn. Your mistakes made you a stronger person. The pain you went through brought you closer to him. You never really lose because God only takes away what could destroy you. He takes away what could break your heart even more.
If you trust God, you’ll never lose hope. Even when your whole world is falling apart. Even if you feel like you can never get anything right. Even if it feels like everyone is abandoning you. God is always with you. God is making room for something bigger in your life when he closes so many doors at the same time. He’s telling you that you need to change your path and your life and he will bring you this change. I learned that a lot of things in life will make you feel that God is not fair but if you look back on all the times you thought God was being ‘unfair’ you will realize that he was actually preparing you for something wonderful. Every time he made life harder, he was preparing you for something that will make your life significantly easier.
If you trust God, you’ll never question him. You’ll always have faith in him even when you don’t understand him. You’ll have faith in his timing even if it’s been years and the clock is ticking and you just can’t wait anymore. You’ll always know deep in your heart that you’re not ready for what you’re asking for.
You’ll understand that the universe is not working against you but is working for you because you know that the universe doesn’t just give you what you’re asking for right away. It gives you what you need at a time when you can appreciate it and love it. At a time when you won’t take it for granted. At a time when you’ve healed from your past and your pain and you’re praying for all the right reasons.
If you trust God, you’ll be happy. Happiness won’t be such an elusive concept. It won’t be something you have to chase. It won’t be something you have to work that hard for. You’ll simply be content and happy with his plans. You’ll be happy that you don’t have to worry about everything because you believe in his mercy and his power.
You’ll be happy once you stop getting so attached to life and start getting more attached to God because with God by your side, there’s really nothing to fear. There’s nothing to worry about. You’ll never be alone. You’ll never be sad.
