Faith = Trust

Talitha had a really good day. We’re so grateful for that. The hope is that she will get as much rest and time at home as possible before the consolidation rounds of chemotherapy begin on April 8.

I started reading an article called “The Atonement and Faith” by Dallin H. Oaks. I came across this passage that really resonated:

“Faith in the Lord is trust in the Lord. We cannot have true faith in the Lord without also having complete trust in the Lord’s will and in the Lord’s timing. As a result, no matter how strong our faith is, it cannot produce a result contrary to the will of Him in whom we have faith. Remember that when your prayers do not seem to be answered in the way or at the time you desire. The exercise of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is always subject to the order of heaven, to the goodness and will and wisdom and timing of the Lord. When we have that kind of faith and trust in the Lord, we have true security and serenity in our lives.”

Finding peace amidst the storm is a real challenge. But it is possible.

I really enjoyed going to church today. I have the privilege of working with the children as they learn and sing inspiring songs about Jesus, and our faith in Him. Church services at the hospital are uplifting but not the same as being together with people who know you and are actively helping to lift burdens. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to be with the children at church.

It’s such a blessing to have the Church and Gospel of Jesus Christ in our lives.

Life has a purpose and there’s a road map for getting through even the roughest waters.
