O LORD of hosts, happy is everyone who trusts in you. Psalm 84:12 NRSV

Thought

On this day of rest for your soul, consider the blessing of trust. In trust you do not bear the burden of grief or life alone. Trust in the goodness and integrity of others. Trust that others love and care about you. Trust in the humanity of others. Allow for the humanness of others. Trust in God.

Prayer

God, there is a glimmer of happiness dawning in my life. I rest today in the blessing of complete trust in you, O Lord of hosts. Amen.

Assurance

When I trust in God, I am blessed with even greater trust.
