All this also comes from the LORD Almighty, whose plan is wonderful, whose wisdom is magnificent. Isaiah 28:29 NIV

Thought

When you are wounded, you are vulnerable. When you are vulnerable, you are sometimes unwilling to trust, even God. Perhaps especially God. The heart in conflict because of grief is an onlooker to trust. A wonderful plan born of God’s infinite wisdom seems almost unimaginable. This is the doorway of trust that opens to the rest of your life.

Prayer

God, I am vulnerable and wounded by the death of my loved one. At times it is so difficult to trust. I pray that I may encounter your magnificent wisdom, even in grief. Amen.

Assurance

I trust God’s wonderful plan for my life.
