Tell me child, why are you disappointed in me? I never promised you that life would be easy. Actually, I alerted you that there will be much opposition. Your trials will develop character and perseverance (Romans 5:3-5). As you turn to Me, I will give you strength and wisdom every step of the way. I am with you always! Your roots will go deep into my truth and much fruit will be evident in your life. Trust Me. Let Me fill you with my Spirit. I will breathe life into your being.
O Lord! I just expected life to be so much easier than it is. Trusting you with my whole heart is hard but really there is no one else to turn to and why would I turn to anything else? You love me! Give me courage to trust you and hope in you. Fill me O Lord with your Spirit so that your joy will overflow from my soul. I choose to trust in you. Strengthen me with your truth, breathe your life into my being.
