Put Your Trust in God

In the past year, I have learned that sometimes God will take away something you love, something you truly think you need, and then give you something better. He takes away something that He knows will ultimately drag you down and gives you something that will lift you up. Something that's extremely hard to remember during these times of loss is that He knows best. He knows what we need more than we do. And when He takes away something we love, He knows how much it hurts us, but we must put our full trust in our Father in Heaven and not get angry with Him. We must trust that He will abide with us during our hardest times because He will. We have to have faith that after the hardest times comes the greatest joy. God has a plan for us, He has a marvelous life mapped out for each and every one of us. And because of that, we must put our full trust and unwavering faith in Him. Life becomes so much easier when we just put our trust in His plan because we no longer have to endure the pain and worry of life or have questions like "what if" or "why". Just let Him carry you and let His plan unfold with every day. 

Trusting in God and His plan gives you a chance to step back from your hardships and sorrows and actually enjoy life and live it to its fullest. If we let Him, He will go through this life with us, hand in hand, and we will never have to feel alone. Remember keep praying and trusting God because no matter what He allows us to go through, He has a plan for you. And He will never let you fall. When nothing makes sense in your life and you feel as if everything is going wrong, trusting in God will always make perfect sense and change your life for the better. So when God takes away someone or something that you loved, and you just feel as if you can't go on without it, look up and trust God because He will always have bigger and better things in store for you. Trusting in Him truly makes our lives easier, better, and so much happier. 

The hardest thing about trusting God is changing our perspective from "Why did God let this happen to me" to "thank you God for letting this happen to me". We have to look at things from an optimistic perspective and try and understand why Heavenly Father would put you through this trial or why Heavenly Father would take away the thing you love most. Maybe it would end up hurting you worse than the pain of losing it. Or maybe the trial was necessary for your spiritual growth and testimony. Changing our perspective will help us to better endure trials and make it easier to put our full trust in God. I promise you that every trial that you endure, and every heartache that you experience will bring you closer to our Heavenly Father and strengthen you testimony if you have the right perspective. Don't let your trials pull you away from Heavenly Father, let them make you stronger and bring you closer to Him. Trust Him and He will not fail you.
