    We should learn to let go of the things we can’t control and also just learn to ride with the waves instead of going against it.

  2. I think God must find me and my habit of praying whenever I am about to start a new project, about to do a difficult task and even when the internet connection is giving me grief.

    This might be because in many ways Hinduism is an individualistic faith which also allows for community spirit but my relationship with the Almighty is one of absolute trust and I’ve never felt the need to accept any conditions because my acceptance and Faith is unconditional.

  3. This is one of the first verses I memorized, when I was in my early 20’s. I so needed God to guide me, and I did not want to lean on my own very limited understanding. Now, with my children becoming teenagers, I put my trust in God alone. My hope must be in Him to keep my children safe.

    I love the reminder you gave, that we must do our part first. I need to be reminded of that daily!

  4. I draw strength from my husband, close friends and myself. I can’t say I just trust all will work out because but I do believe I can be with whatever happens. I also believe I am responsible for the direction of my life.

    In all honesty & fairness, I refrain from discussing religion or politics online, be it in blogs, posts, tweets. I’m sure you understand.

  5. All so true. I often say to myself, “Jesus, I trust in You.” Were it not for my faith, I’m not sure I’d been in the position I am today. So many times during losses, illness, financial struggles and marital discord I wanted to throw in the towel, but then I remembered that it doesn’t all rely on me or my weaknesses. Truly coming to the realization that I can totally trust in God has lightened many a burden from my shoulders.

  6. I have learned to trust myself, my inner voice of intuition and know that I am always being guided by the spiritual world. We all are, and it is a matter of whether we choose to listen to the guidance we are being given. We all have the “answers” within us and so often we look to the outside world for opinions and information and base our choices for ourselves on that. Only we know what is the best choice for us in every given circumstance. I believe we have the power to create our lives based on certain laws of the Universe and also the opportunity to accept what is so and remain calm and peaceful with it. So yes, I do believe in a higher power and trust that it is in play at all times.
