In times of pain, trust God

I read this somewhere yesterday and it got me to think about my trust in God.

I don't consider myself a religious person as I don't really pray everyday. I try and pray every morning as I want my daughters to understand that it is important to do so. I do go for prayers every week but then that is more so that my daughters get a good foundation. I had a good foundation and that's why today even though I don't pray everyday, I believe that my faith in God is as strong as the faith of a person who payers 3 or 5 times a day.

I was in so much pain a few months ago after I discovered that Inarah had a CHD. And I think I have survived so far living with this fact because I really do trust God. I trusted him by leaving her in his hands, to do as he deems right/necessary no matter how painful it could have been for me.

He is with me in this and has given me the wisdom and patience to see this through thus far. He has helped me by making me forget that she is a CHD child so that I can enjoy the moments that I spend with her without fear and sorrow. He has kept her well, healthy and happy (she is smiling all the time) alhamdullilah.

And in this time of happiness, I thank him. I know there will be times of pain again, times of sorrow, difficulties, all I have to do then is again trust HIM.

well said sham - i have to say that because of your attitude towards inarah, i too (and i'm sure everyone around her as well), tend to forget her condition... she's a beautiful happy child and she is perfect - and HE is with you and her always. i hope that as the years pass, we will always be able to think of her and treat her as we would any other child, without having to worry about her condition...
