God is more interested in changing my heart than in changing my circumstances. I check my attitude and motives and realize that God always takes care of and provides for needs for each moment. He promised to walk alongside as I face every burden in life.

Faith in God is not exclusive to things like sorrowful experiences, or trusting him to provide for my practical needs. Yet faith in him means entirely surrendering my whole self to him, no matter what he gives or withholds, what he allows, or in moments of silent.

I continue to remember that his grace and love remain.


“Waiting is totally submitting to God

and inviting God to move

into our hearts with complete freedom.

When we wait,

we yield up our expectations

of what God should do,

our precious hoards of ritual and doctrine,

our social awareness,

and our self-concepts.”
