Trust and Remberance

Life is always full of unexpected moments; some good and others very humbling and full of grieving.
Tonight, my family finds itself here; trying to wrap our  heads around a very new reality. It's not easy, God never said it would be, but we must trust in the Lord to help us through.

As we sit here in reflection tonight, a simple prayer and verse provides the comfort we seek. Here it is:
(The following is an excerpt from One-Minute Prayers for favorite devotional!)
A Song to Sing
I trust in your unfailing love, my heart rejoices in your salvation. I will sing to the Lord, for he has been good to me.
~Psalm 13:5-6~
God, You have been so good to me. I trust You and what You are doing in my life. Some days I clearly see Your love for me. I received a kind word at a time of sorrow. I was offered help when I was afraid to ask. And just when I thought I could not continue, I had a vision of what Your hand was doing in that very circumstance.
I could not navigate my days without trusting Your love and intent for good. I pray that my actions translate into lyrics for the world to hear. I want everyone to know the song of Your love and mercy. I lift up my voice to proclaim Your goodness. "I know a love that never fail me!" I cry out into a world of people who know only of broken love and misplaced trust. Thank You, Lord, for giving me a song to sing.

No matter what God places in our path, we must remember that all things work for His good. It's not usually easy, but remembering God's promises and of His unfailing love, I know that this time will last for a moment and will work magnificently into His plans!

Does this verse evoke something within you? Please share, it's wonderful to hear how Christ works through us all!
