And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God. Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. Mark 11:22-24
When life is complicated and not going the way we want it, we need to stop and let go of us being in control and leave it all up to God. His plan is so much better and bigger than ours and He knows what we need and desire. Yes, there are times things happen that are bad, and you’re confused why such a God would allow the bad things to happen in our lives. I’ve given up trying to understand the why’s and just accept what is said in the Bible that, we are to trust the Lord and not lean on our own understanding but accept His ways and answers.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.” Matthew 21:22
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the people of old received their commendation. By faith, we understand that the universe was created by the word of God so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible. By faith Abel offered to God a more acceptable sacrifice than Cain, through which he was commended as righteous, God commending him by accepting his gifts. And through his faith, though he died, he still speaks. By faith, Enoch was taken up so that he should not see death, and he was not found, because God had taken him. Now before he was taken he was commended as having pleased God. Hebrews 11:1-40
I trust God with all of my heart, mind, and soul. He’s never failed me in my life and has always blessed me with many miracles that only answer to who did this and how? It’s God. He hears our prayers and sees our tears. We are never alone in any situation we face. Just call out to him and believe that your prayer will be answered. Be patient and wait quietly on the Lord.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. Romans 15:13

SEEK ME with all your whole being. I desire to be found by you, and I orchestrate the events of your life with that purpose in mind. When things go well and you are blessed, you can feel Me smiling on you. When you encounter rough patches along your life-journey, trust that My Light is still shining upon you. My reasons for allowing these adversities may be shrouded in mystery, but My continual Presence with you is an absolute promise. Seek Me in good times, seek Me in hard times. You will find Me watching over you all the time. Deuteronomy 4:29 Hebrews 10:23 Psalm 145:20
