“Trust in God”

“Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act.”
[Psalm 37:5]

Therefore, it is best to trust in God, even though we cannot be without tears, sorrow and pain. What can we do against this? Our flesh is such that it is impossible for it to not sob, weep, grieve, and complain. Indeed, even cattle express their pain by their bellowing when they are slaughtered; and lifeless things, like timber, are not cut down and broken up down without a crash. But let us not doubt that it has already been determined by God that He wants to turn these pains, troubles, and brief crosses … into everlasting and supreme joy. With this confidence and hope, He shall very easily lighten our troubles and cares.
