Life is often chaotic. It’s sometimes painful. It’s always filled with surprises. And there is nothing you can do to change this reality. So don’t waste your time denying the way things are and hoping ‘it will all be just the way I want it to be’. Instead, turn to God who always knows what you need and trust that God is at work giving it to you. Sometimes suddenly and miraculously. At other times gradually. And at still other times, patiently helping you let go of the old so you can embrace the new. So don’t live your life trying to deny real life – instead, trust God. Don’t spend your life attempting to manipulate God – instead, trust God. And don’t devote your life seeking everything to work out the way you think it should – instead, trust God. Indeed, always trust God.
