Trust God

Will you trust God when things aren’t working out? That’s probably the toughest question you’ll ever face.

Mary and Martha faced the question when their brother became ill. They sent word to Jesus to come to help. But Jesus didn't arrive in time. Their brother died.

When we face major disappointments, will we trust that God loves us? Or will we take it as a sign that God can't be trusted?

Our answer to this important question will have profound implications in how our life turns out.

God, help us to realize we can trust you even when we are confused, disappointed or discouraged. Thank you. Amen.

See John 11 for more background.
