03. I believe and trust!

How great is God’s Mercy! In my life, I have experienced the Goodness of God in the midst of great suffering.

In everything that is my cross: in my illness, helplessness, limitations, abandonment – Jesus Christ shows me His Love and reveals His glory. God constantly bends over my human misery and cares for me every moment as the best, tender and merciful Father! Every day He shows me His kindness and love, fatherly care and compassion. If it weren’t for God’s protection, I wouldn’t be able to cope on my own. If not for the help of merciful God, I do not know what would have happened with me. The Lord pours out His grace on me all the time, although I do not deserve such great gifts. Therefore, I can boldly repeat after St. John Paul II: “I am so much in God’s hands.

Yes, everything is in the Hands of God. I entrust myself to His Mercy. I put all my trust in God’s Mercy. Every moment of my life is a grace flowing from the infinite Mercy of God. Everything I have received is a gift of Mercy. Divine Mercy accompanies me constantly through my whole life. In God’s Mercy I find help, support and care in every situation. From the Divine Mercy I draw strength and courage to deal effectively with the problems of each day and to carry the daily cross. God’s mercy is for me a source of hope and faith that God is with me, constantly watches over me, never leaves me and never refuses His help.

Jesus Christ is the Merciful Love. I place all my hope in Jesus. I trust that the Lord will guide me and look after me the whole life because He is very good and merciful. I believe that He will not forsake me and will take care of everything I need. I trust that God cares for me like the best Father for his child. I also believe that the Holy Mother, Virgin Mary watches over me, because I entrusted myself to Her. I also believe in the effective intercession of saints and angels – my friends in Heaven. I trust that with God I will overcome every hardship of my earthly pilgrimage and I will happily reach Heaven – the goal of my destiny.

I can confidently say that I live and take refuge in the shadow of God’s, fatherly, protective “wings” and that is why I would like to repeat with the psalmist:

Psalm 23 (Psalm of David)

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
