I'm working through Joyce Meyer's devotional, Trusting God Day by Day and today's reading struck a chord with me. The title is "Trust God Through the Hard Times":
"Often when we think of trusting God, we think of trusting Him for things we need or want - financial provision, physical healing, the restoration of a relationship, or a promotion at work. A true relationship of trust in God extends beyond trusting Him for something and includes trusting Him through a situation. We need to learn to not simply look to Him for the results we desire; we need to learn to trust Him through the process of attaining them...because He is with us, we can go through trials in our lives with stable, positive attitudes, trusting God completely, even against seemingly impossible odds."
