"O Lord, my God, in you I take refuge."
Psalm 7: 1


When we face difficulties in life, it is easy to blame God or ask why He would let such things happen to us. We are quick to blame and often turn away from Him. However, this should not be the case. The moments we when feel most discouraged and when we are struggling most, should be the times we turn to Him. When we feel as if the world is on our shoulders, we must trust in God’s plan and know He will never give us more than we can handle. We all go through hardships and we should not get angry at God or blame Him. Struggling is simply part of life and we must accept it. It is easier to deal with the trials and pains of our lives when we trust He will always be there for us.


Lord, I pray You grant me the courage to fully trust in You. May I always turn to You in times of need and know You will always be there guiding me and granting me comfort. Amen.

Jer 11: 18-20, Ps 7: 2-3, 9b-12; Jn 7: 40-53
