Woman, you have great faith.  Let it be done for you as you wish.  – Mt 15:28

Reflection.  There are times when we must pass through a dark valley.  We feel as though God has abandoned us.  Do not believe it.  He is right there wondering if we trust Him enough to be brave.  It pleases Him immensely when we whistle in the dark.

Prayer.  Thank You, Jesus.  Increase my confidence in You.  Help me to understand that my peace will be found in Your will and that the crosses of my life are opportunities for growth.  Protect me from my fears.
