Trust Again

Excerpts

Youth Magazine, Global 2021/11 Nov

Two Prodigal Sons, by Jorge Cocco

Have you ever felt like you are running from home? Often, running from home means trust has been frayed or broken—trust with ourselves, with each other, with God. When trust is challenged, we wonder how to trust again.

My message today is, whether we are coming home or going home, God is coming to meet us. In Him we can find faith and courage, wisdom and discernment, to trust again. Likewise, He asks us to keep the light on for each other, to be more forgiving and less judgmental of ourselves and each other, so His Church can be a place where we feel at home, whether we are coming for the first time or returning.

Trust is an act of faith. …

We know that joy on the Lord’s covenant path and callings to serve in His Church are an invitation to feel God’s trust and love for us and each other. …

Trust becomes real when we do hard things with faith. Service and sacrifice increase capacity and refine hearts. …

While our individual circumstances are personal, gospel principles and the Holy Ghost can help us know if, how, and when to trust in others again. …

Trust God and His miracles. We and our relationships can change. …

Our life journeys are individual, but we can come again to God our Father and His Beloved Son through trust in God, each other, and ourselves.
