We only trust when we know we are loved unconditionally. Deep inside we are not certain that we God loves us this way. But to receive His mercy we need to open our hearts and become vulnerable, let go of our control. This is trust.
Let no soul, even the most miserable, fall prey to doubt;
for as long as one is alive, each one can become a great saint,
so great is the power of God's grace.
It remains only for us not to oppose God's action.
Saint Faustina's Diary #238
Like a Rosebud in God´s Hand
"It is only a tiny rosebud,
A flower of God's design;
But, I cannot unfold the petals
With these clumsy hands of mine."
"The secret of unfolding flowers
Is not known to such as I.
GOD opens this flower so easily,
But, in my hands they die."
"If I cannot unfold a rosebud,
This flower of God's design,
Then, how can I have the wisdom
To unfold this life of mine?"
"So, I'll trust in God for leading
Each moment of my day.
I will look to God for guidance
In each step along the way."
"The path that lies before me,
Only my Lord and Savior knows.
I'll trust God to unfold the moments,
Just as He unfolds the rose."
