Something good will come of this, I just know it.
I trust You, Lord.
You have begun a good work in me You have promised to complete.
If my present struggles and heartbreak are part of what You are doing, I will trust You.
I will continue to hope and believe I will see Your goodness even know…through all the tears.
Keep me from focusing so much on my pain that I forget You.
Keep me from being self-absorbed.
Help me to embrace You even though I don’t understand why You have allowed this to happen.
Help me to stop doubting You.
When I don’t understand Your ways, please increase my faith.
Help me to be sure of what I hope for and certain of what I do not see.
But I am weary, Lord.
When I want to fall under the weight of this burden, lift me out of the mud and mire of my afflictions and set my feet on a rock.
Please give me a firm place to stand.
Oh Lord, put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to You.
Let my struggles be a witness to all that You are God and there is no other.
Let those who peer into the midst of this chaos see that You are a faithful and mighty God.
That You are full of love and compassion.
Holy Spirit, help me in my weakness.
Thank You for interceding for me when I can’t even find the words to pray.
In my anguish, I cry out to You…and You answer by setting me free.
You are with me.
I will not be afraid.
I will rejoice in the midst of my struggles because You are my helper.
I can’t even imagine trying to endure these trials without You.
Thank You, God, that I don’t have to.
