Trust is something that is just so hard to do. Trust is based on past experiences. How can you trust something that has given you a negative experience? How can you trust God when your life is just full of pain and suffering? Life is not always good. I remind myself that this life is but a fraction to my eternity. I trust based on faith. I trust based on conviction and I trust based on a selfless love such as the cross. PJSLB
This is a good point to make. I have little experience in my prayers being answered, so my mind goes, “God’s glory is saying no to your prayers, for whatever reason.” Of course, that’s highly questionable when you really think about it, but experience is a big informer of our expectations of the future.
