Trust

Trust

For silver, the crucible;
for gold, the furnace;
for the heart, the living God.
(Proverbs 17:3)

Creator of the universe, You gave me life, in which joys and sorrows are commingled in accordance with Your wisdom; and You send death, with its promise of eternal peace. Teach me to accept humbly and courageously whatever burden is laid upon me. Comfort me and all who mourn, and let the light of faith illumine the darkness of our sorrow with the hope of immortality. Strengthen us at all times with an unfailing trust in Your providence.
