READ: “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!”—Mark 9:24

REFLECT: Once, my husband left on a trip to Japan only days after a tragic plane crash had shocked the world and other terrorist threats of more plane bombings had been looming.

As the monitor in the airport lounge flashed “Departed” next to his flight number, my stomach began to tighten. It would be 14 hours before he would be on the ground again, and I was in for a real worry marathon.

Then a prayer came to me: “Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.” I kept repeating these words to myself, until the din of fearful “what-ifs” was replaced by feelings of calmness and confidence in the Lord.

My husband returned safely, of course, but more than that, my faith was steady once again. That’s not to say that faith insulates us from life’s sorrows or tragedies. But always, we can believe in Him Who carries us through anything.

PRAY: I do want to trust You more, Lord. Please help me overcome my unbelief.

DO: Play the “what-if” game, but this time, replace all the bad things with good ones.
