If you then, despite your evil nature, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask Him.  – Mt 7:11

Reflection.  Try to get into the spirit of faith.   Do not expect bad things to happen.  Await the Lord’s goodness like a joyful child standing before the Christmas tree, awaiting the opening of the presents.

Prayer.  I trust You, Lord, and that means I trust Your love.  I can expect the best from You.  Even in times of suffering I will not succumb to doubt.
