NOVENA OF TRUST - Day Twenty-Three
"That You always hear me and in Your goodness always respond to me. - Jesus, I trust in You."
Following on yesterday's offering we can once again say God's ways are not our ways and today, God's response is not always the response we are seeking.
Have you ever prayed for something and continually felt that God was deaf to your petition? That He was not answering? Often the truth is, we have been looking for the answer we wanted and overlooking the answer He gave.
As every good parent knows, we often have to say no to our children to keep them safe, happy and healthy. God does the same with us.
Trusting God fully is hard! Trusting God fully means we realize His love for us and even if His answer is no, we trust that His NO is for our good and the good of those we pray for.
May we trust today in the reality that God hears our every word and He ALWAYS responds in the way that is best for us!
Sacred Heart of Jesus, pray for us.
