Many of us have been through truly difficult times, or you might be going through such a time right now. It’s easy to despair when we’re really struggling or suffering, but St. Heychius the Priest reminds us to always trust God:

When we are in trouble or despair or have lost hope, we should do what David did: pour out our hearts to God and tell Him of our needs and troubles, just as they are. It is because He can deal with us wisely that we confess to God: He can make our troubles easy to bear, if this is for our benefit, and can save us from the dejection which destroys and corrupts.
