Sometimes, trusting God can be difficult.
There's a lot of cliches built into the concept of "simply have faith" and "simply trust in God." There's a whole lot people who are disappointed in the long run, though perhaps in the short run such sentiments are capable of sustaining the souls of the suffering.
I can fully admit that my ability to trust God isn't nearly as strong as it should be despite the abundant evidence handed to me time and again. That's a pretty bold statement to make, yet I've seen some near miraculous (and perhaps outright miraculous) things happen.
There's an interesting point- when the miraculous does occur, does it truly feel like a miracle? Or does it feel perfectly natural?
Some people with near-death experiences have claimed that the supernatural world seemed more real than the everyday world of the living, that this world is as a dream by comparison. So it would follow that the "supernatural" experience feels perfectly normal and natural in its state.
I think God can found in the ordinary. I think things can flow wonderfully and be happy. This is what we must trust. Suffering must be put to an end. Let us find the greater trust in ourselves.
