Come to my aid!

There are times when my faith falters.

R. Lord, come to my aid!
The LORD heard my cry.
He drew me out of the pit of destruction,
 out of the mud of the swamp;
he set my feet upon a crag;
 he made firm my steps.
R. Lord, come to my aid!

Psalm 40:14b, 40:3

Certainly there are times when I’m feeling tested by uncertainty and doubts. Perhaps not directly my faith in God, exactly, but more about how much I can trust Him to protect me through my trials.

That’s when I find it helpful to see how He has supported and helped others. Certainly St. Joseph is a great example: it must have been incredibly tough to protect his family based on the fantastical testimony of Mary.

OK, he was helped by an angel coming to him in a dream. Sometimes I wish that I’d hear God in that way, but it doesn’t seem to happen.

So it comes back to my faith. God, help me to have faith in Your love for us!
