We are to submit to His holy will. (Mary Winslow, "Walking with Jesus")

There is nothing that can take place towards a
child of God but what our heavenly Father designs,
in infinite love, for our spiritual advancement, and
His own glory. We are to submit to His holy will,
and believe that there was a 'needs be' for it.

The Lord loves His children too well to lay upon
them the weight of a feather, without an absolute
necessity, and without some wise and loving
purpose. God deals wisely and graciously with
us in all His varying dispensations.

If tears could be shed in heaven, we would
weep that we ever mistrusted His goodness
in His dealings towards us.

WOW...such a small passage, such a large reminder of how mistrusting we are. Sometimes I think Ive overcome worry, and thinking I know whats best, yeah right!!!
I pray today that I will trust the Lord and know that ALL things , do work together for good, and for the glory of God, and that I will REST in Him! Lord , give strength to this weary traveler for TODAY. Help my unbelief.

So very true. We may not understand why things happen the way they do, but we can trust that God is directing everything that happens and he certainly knows best. All things are for our (believers)good and his glory.

1 Corinthians 13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

Glenda,

Oh how I can relate. He has always taken care of every single thing He has put on my plate and yet I worry about tomorrow or next week, KNOWING all the while His watchcare over me will never change as He never changes.

We are weak and frail in our trust but He loves us with an everlasting love, amen? I will pray that He will strengthen you on the journey.
