Worrying about the future is something nearly everyone does. We are so predictable in our worry that there is even an entire industry built around it. But no matter how much insurance we buy to protect ourselves against what may come, we cannot change Allah’s will for the future.
Knowing that the Lord of the Heavens and the earth has a plan for you, and is there to hold you as you go through this difficulty, was among the most comforting feeling for Alisha. At first I needed to really try and make her believe that better things would be coming.
When we are worried thinking about the future, we need to work hard but have full trust in God that He will not leave us, and we must always think well of God because that is what we will find. Yet in certain circumstances we just feel broken...

Our faith is tested during these times but not without reward. After all God is with those who are patient and who have complete faith in Him. It is His divine plan and we must succumb to His will. Not only does He know best, He may be giving us a blessing in disguise...
If we want to be men and women of faith we need to trust. There are some times in our lives when our faith is sorely tested. It is then that we are called to trust. At other times our faith becomes lukewarm. It is then that we are called to trust.
