Divine Mercy

Trust Is A Decision…Not A Feeling!

 

Catholic speaker and author Gary Zimak is available to speak at your parish or conference

Do you struggle to trust Jesus? Is it difficult to surrender your life to Him? You are not alone!

Here’s what you need to do. Take a look at the Divine Mercy image above and pray the words at the bottom. Repeat as often as needed. Wait a minute, you might ask. What about if I don’t feel like I trust Him? Wouldn’t that be lying?

Not at all! Trust is a decision, not a feeling. You can choose to trust the Lord even if you’re scared to death. But wait, it gets even better. The more you consciously decide to trust Jesus with your problems, the more your trust will grow. Try it out and see what happens.

By the way, in case you’re still not convinced, check out what St. Faustina had to say in her diary:

You know, Lord, how weak I am. I am an abyss of wretchedness, I am nothingness itself; so what will be so strange if You leave me alone and I fall? I am an infant, Lord, so I cannot get along by myself. However, beyond all abandonment I trust, and in spite of my own feeling I trust, and I am being completely transformed into trust-often in spite of what I feel.
(Diary, 1489, emphasis mine)

Jesus, I Trust In You!
