When life's situation gets difficult, I learned that two things can happen: it gets better or it gets worse. If it gets better, which everyone in a difficult situation hopes, then it is time for celebration. Finally.
However, it can also get worse. More difficult or about the same for a longer time. In these times, one has to dig deep, find that anchor, and hold on to it tightly. Whether things get better or get even worse, one thing is for sure: it cannot be the same forever. Change is coming. How soon or how late, no one can tell. But we should continue to do what we need to do.
In difficult times, we can get worried. Will life get more difficult? Will I be able to withstand its onslaught? Will I fail those who depend on me? But worrying is useless. "If we worry, we do not trust. If we trust, we do not worry. Worry does not empty tomorrow of its grief, but it does empty today of its joy." (James Kurtz)
So I choose to trust. I trust God and his infinite goodness and mercy. I trust the universal laws of justice. I trust the balanced cycle of nature. I trust what is good and noble in man.
