NOVENA OF TRUST - Day Four
"From the fear that trusting You will leave me more destitute.
Deliver me, Jesus."
As I prayed with this petition, I realized once again that learning to trust God does come with the challenge (which can be difficult) to give up my focus on me - what I want. Truly trusting Him leads me to seek what He wants in my life, rather than what I want.
In fact, trusting God calls me to examine every day my "wants" vs my "needs". Often I find what I want is not what I need and will therefore never bring me happiness.
Will following God leave us destitute, NEVER. If we examine with an open heart, we will clearly see that He always leads us to and provides for, our needs - that is if we are doing our part as well!
Sacred Heart of Jesus, pray for us.
