TRUST ME IN TIMES OF CONFUSION AND IN STORMS—WHEN things don't make sense and nothing you do seems to help.
This type of trust delights Me, because I know it is real.
Invite Me to enter into your struggles—to be ever so close to you.
Though other people may not really understand what you're going through, I understand perfectly.
Find comfort in knowing you're not alone in your struggles.
I am with you, watching over you continually.
Long-term trials can drain you of energy and hope, making it hard for you to keep trusting Me.
But I have given you a wonderful Helper, the Holy Spirit, who never runs out of strength.
You can ask for His help, praying:
'I trust You, Jesus; help me, Holy Spirit.'
Instead of trying to resolve all your problems, simply rest in My Presence.
Trust that there is a way forward, even though you can't yet see it.
I am providing a good way for you, though it is bumpy at times.
When the road is rough, cling all the more tightly to Me.
As your soul clings to Me, My right hand upholds you.
