Here’s a prayer on trust that my friend, Amy, wrote. She sent it to me and I modified it a bit for all of us.
I trust there is a plan even when I don’t know what it is.
I trust that the process is perfect no matter how it appears, and that my path is mine, no one else’s.
What is ultimately good for me can look bizarre but I still trust my journey.
I know that all is good–there are no mistakes.
I trust that I am watched over and that my heart is attached to G-d’s.
I need to remember that G-d smiles on me all the time.
I trust that whatever is completely overwhelming right now, whatever seems hopeless and wrong, will not last forever. At some point I will get a break; the right people will show up to enhance my journey and everyone and everything that is not for my highest good will drift away on their own.
I trust that I am exactly where I’m supposed to be today.
We came up with different acronyms. Mine is: Total Reliance on an Unknowable Sure Thing. What’s yours for TRUST? Send ’em in.
And I hope that whatever you are going through today, you can trust that it’s what you need to learn an important spiritual lesson.
More on high-lining here. This is not an endorsement. What normal Jewish mother would encourage her kid to high-line? But acceptance doesn’t mean you like something. It just is and you recognize it.
