Nehemiah 9:15 For their hunger you gave them bread from heaven, and for their thirst you brought water for them out of the rock, and you told them to go in to possess the land that you swore to give them.
“My child, am I so different now? Am I not the same, yesterday, today, and forever? Then do not fear! Why do you fear? Why do you refuse to trust me? Have not all your efforts outside of grace been futile? I AM. Trust in me. If my works fail to satisfy your expectations, it is not my works that are lacking, but your faulty expectations. Surrender to me in all things. Remain docile to the Holy Spirit who longs to work great works in you and through you. Be an instrument for the kingdom. Trust and do not fear. Remain in my grace through the sacraments and pray to be delivered from fear and temptation. Remain in me and be at peace. Shalom.”
O beloved Father of my heart, help me always to be abandoned in your arms like an infant at rest. Help me to trust you more. In your mercy, deliver me from fear and temptation. Come Holy Spirit! Fill me with courage, strength, and peace. Jesus I trust in you. Jesus I trust in you. Jesus I trust in you. Jesus I trust in you. Jesus I trust in you.
