Trust that Everything Will Turn Out Right

posted by Jennifer E. Jones

In my last blog, I mentioned seasons changing. Our lives are forever evolving with days of sunshine and rain, happiness and tears and everything in between. I know that I said that despite the loss, seasons changing is a good thing. However, I know firsthand that when major shifts initially happen, they don’t feel so good. In fact, sometimes it’s enough to knock you down or even knock you out.

One of the best ways to cope with big changes in your life is to trust that everything will turn out right. I don’t mean that in a trite or cliché way. I mean that you genuinely believe that, in spite of how things look today, eventually one of two things will happen:

1). Your circumstances will change to fit your needs.

2). Your needs will change to fit the circumstances.

On one hand, nothing stays the same forever, and whatever new seasons you find yourself in now will change into something else. As my dad loves to tell me, “This too shall pass.” On the other hand, we are amazingly adaptable creatures. We can change. When you lose the thing you thought you couldn’t live without, chances are you discover over time that you’ve learned how to move on (or even move up!). You find a new rhythm – a new normal. And before you know it, you wake up one day still alive, well and, perhaps, even better off than you were before.

So take the changing seasons in stride and do like the old Bob Marley song says. Don’t worry. Everything is gonna be all right.

Made me smile as your Dad’s motto has always been mine as well. This too shall pass.
And yes when we think we can’t face another day, we get up and go on.
We are more adaptable to change then we think. I lived my entire life on a 5 square mile island,but because our kids came to this country went to school and made there lives here, we are now in Florida and loving it.

My mother passed on 09/09/11 and was laid to rest 09/10/2011. It was sort of sudden (cancer diagnosis 11 days before her death) I have cried, I miss her dearly, but somehow I know that everything is gonna be alright.
In fact I wrote a song today called “Everythings Gonna Be Alright” It just came tp me and now I receive this message from you. God is so amazing! I just had tpo share this with you! Thanks for all your words of inspiration.

Well I keep asking myself that question, Will everything be alright? You say things never stay the same, well maybe in some cases they do, because I have been in such a dark place for so long, and with no support, Im soo alone, the only thing that keeps me here is my Father God, my faith, otherwise I couldnt bear the pain, So I hope your Dad is right, maybe someday, some year, this too shall pass. Thankyou for those words of wisdom God Bless- would you say a prayer for me, if you dont pray thats ok, I will pray for you, Trisha

I have cancer and sometimes you just need to read something like this to make things make sense. This is such a beautiful message, I’ve always believed out of tragic things there are lessons to be learned, and after cancer you look at life so differently, its more precious and I’m so much more appreciative of things & mostly people I love.

349 days ago, I lost my beloved husband of 33 years. After an 8 month battle with cancer, he lost the fight. As I walked out of the hospital with out 2 daughters, I could barely breath. I was overcome with my emotions to the point of being numb. We had kept a positive attitude throughout his illness, and in an instant, my faith was shattered. As the 1 year anniversary of his death approaches, I am trying to re-invent myself. I am starting to be able to focus outside of my own head. Of course some days are better than others. Friends and family are always full of suggestions and advice. I have tried to remain true to myself and not make any snap decisions, or have unrealistic expectations. I am too young to be a widow, but this is a fact that I must swallow. Change is inevidable, adjustments must be made, and we adapt. Faith takes on a different meaning depending on the circumstance. I have had to redefine that meaning to be able to go on. I like the words in Jennifers column,
Your circumstances will change to fit your needs.
Your needs will change to fit the circumstances.
I will keep trying to believe in faith and the power of positive thinking, to the best of my human ability. Let go and let God.

Being broke put things into perpective for me. Be happy with what you have now because sooner or later it will be gone. I love what I do and I have three great kids. I am truly blessed!

Thank you,at this point in my life I needed to read the article “trust that everything will turn out right”. Sometimes we get caught up in our own stress and frustrations that we forget we are hurting loved ones by acting moody and negative towards them. This reminds me that god will sometimes make you walk on your own, but he does not abandon you.

I loved this article. I could relate to it. When I lost my husband, I didn’t think I could survive without him. When he was alive, I used to tell him ” I wanted to go first, because I can’t imagine life without you”. It’s been 7 going on 8 years he’s been gone. Like the article said, I’ve learned to adapt. Life has changed, will never be the same but I am okay. I’ve adapted.

To Trisha & Gina, I just don’t know what to say in response to both of your comments. I can relate to what both of ladies wrote. I have cancer well, I hope I don’t since chemo, surgery & now radiation. Before I was diagnoised, my brother & sister died in my arms 2 yrs apart, I have a daughter but I too am prone to depression. Dark hole is what I refer to it. Until I really started praying & a relationship with God, I was lost. I didnt know my purpose & I still don’t but what I do know is that days are what I make them. Minutes, hours, days, months, years, thats what its like but because I have faith I will not allow myself to sink any deeper. Right this very second I am in my room where I have been all day. I want to get out & volunteer,visit museums, do something for someone else & I don’t have the momentum. I even didnt go to radiation. This is my life & I’m blowing it away. I just had to send this to wake my own pathetic self, get busy living or get busy dying. I WANT TO LIVE!

I took off this morning to fly across the country to an interview for a job that I am really, really excited about. I had one flight cancellation, one severe delay (Pilot needed more fuel after sitting on the Tarmac for 45 minutes), which made me miss my connecting, which kept me from being able to get to my initially scheduled interview. I kept everyone informed, and kept a positive attitude, but being 3 hours late to an interview, and getting there after business hours is never good.

I saw this email header in my inbox at 3:30 as I was getting my rental car, and it made me remember that all things happen for a reason. Interview went well, and I was asked back for tomorrow mornings more intensive section, which I know I will do very well in.

Thanks for the reminder Jennifer! I hope everyone has a great day tomorrow, I know I’m looking forward to it!

I have to admit that for the last 45 minutes I’ve been watching and listening to the Piers Morgans show on CNN

common sense and marvelous good will. He has lifted my spirits tonight and I am grateful to him for returning this good cheer to my heart and mind after kind of a

I am a very firm believer that God will care for us in His Fatherly ways, full of love & compassion & I am always struggling to trust Him more. When I say struggling, I KNOW in my heart that HE will be there for me, see me through every storm I face and yet… I catch myself often fearful & upset because I feel my soul struggle to cast every fear over, then so upset with myself for having even the slightest fear! How can I learn to give 100% of my trust to him, not hold onto one bit, even when I say I will? It is a constant, day-to-day struggle & although I meditate in His word & pray daily, I feel like a failure to Him & to myself.

Terrific reminder Jennifer. It helped me feel on track. It is good to remember that the things we might feel worried about are not going to last…. and they are probably much more inconsequential than we think!

Reminds me of a quote: “Everything will be okay in the end… if it is not okay, it is not the end.” ~Unknown

For me, it is usually a matter of coming back to heart and love and myself. When I am in myself and in my heart…. it is easier to trust. I wrote about this not long ago: http://www.lightworkersworld.com/2011/02/what-is-spiritual-love-how-to-love-yourself-using-universal-truths-by-michael-alperstein/

Some people may find that post useful for connecting with an inner love..

Anyhow, thanks again for the great reminders…

I have been fighting a negative mind set and found that turning my thinking around has started making a difference. It’s not easy as it’s changing a lifetime example from a negative world bombarding you every day but you have to start somewhere. MAKE yourself stop the stinking thinking!! EXPECT positive solutions. BELIEVE it. APPRECIATE and GIVE THANKS for the good things you DO have…whether they be 1 or 50 – you can find something. Get a phrase or sing/song something that will stop the negativity. I use the old song, “Praise God from Whom All Blessings Flow”…it’s a start. I’ve started seeing positive things come into my life even in the form of a smaller bill in the mail than expected and got a letter from the IRS yesterday forgiving penalities from an old debt. The only car we had that run quit and the person I took it to will allow me to pay out the amount to fix it. A friend let us borrow his truck so we could get to work and school. I’ll take all the positive solutions that is coming my way and expect more! Whatever you are going through, I pray to a joyful, loving Father God, the same one that spoke the world into existance, the same one that said do not let anyone steal your joy, that He grant you peace and prosperity.

Although, I am physically exhausted and scared, I trust in my Lord. My soul rejoices in His kindness. I have to do the walking, but I know I am never alone. God is my light and I will find my way out of this tunnel. Amen

I hope you are doing well today, Trisha. I am new to this site and this is my first time on here. But, your comment touched my heart and I will say a prayer for you. Just take it day by day and have faith in our God. We all go through hard times and even feel like there isn’t anyone who cares…noone to turn to. But, always know that God cares and he is always there. And I care too. I do not know you, but I care. Take care of yourself and God bless you!!!

Whoever read this pray 4 me and my family . Thank you.

All I can say is a simple thank you. I needed to hear uplifting words after the harsh day I had at work last week. It’s encouraging for me to think/remind myself that I’m not alone in this rough and tumble thing called “life”. Tomorrow it’s back to work again, but with my faith & knowing that God is by my side, I will try to have the courage to comfront my boss about last week.

My mother passes February 22, 2011. My life has never been the same. When something happens in my life now I reach to call her to share the news with her and she’s not there. Depression, heartaches and living from day to day has been so unbearable. This is truly my darkest season but I have faith and I know my God is working with me. After reading your article it gave me strength to continue to live as she would have me to do. Yes, I have to adjust to live without her physically but I know she’s my angel and will always be with me.

Although I find truth in your article, what caught my eye was the quote from your dad. I just loss my dad recently, and he was intwined with my life so closely that I found some of words empty. I do not mean to sound rude or impolite, but I can tell that your father is a huge part of your life, like mine was to me. And when the awful day comes into your life, I just wonder how this article might be written a bit differently. I don’t know why I felt the need to express this, my understanding of empathy has been very clearlily defined for me due to the death of my dad and truly until you yourself has had the particular struggle or loss, you can not fully understand the pain. However, we all must have hope to move and live for a day that we can smile and be happy once again. Better it will never be, without your loved one being with you.

My husband and I recently got back together and he was okay for a week and then it changed. Our relationship went back to the way it was before. He stopped talking and getting back in that distant mood. Sunday i hated to but, i asked him to be intimate with me and he turns to me and says you’re gonna have to calm down. I was litterally blown away and sad. i get up with my two young children every morning and church on sundays and he doesn’t do a thing but go to work and what hurts the most he never says hello you look nice or anything. if concerned reply back or email me at latoya391@yahoo.com

I found Dr. Abu on the web when my finances were in real trouble. My husband had gambled away most of our savings, I had no job, and we were facing foreclosure. I needed a money spell from Dr. Abu, and quick. I can’t believe how understanding he was. After ordering the spell, I felt much more confident that things would turn out. Believe it or not, it did. I won $150,000.00 the following week, found a high paying job and my husband went into treatment for gambling addiction. We’re doing much better now and we get to keep the house. Thank you, Dr. Abu, for being there when my heart needed it the most. If you need help in any area of your life just contact this good man and he will help you at once. Contact him via: Ominighospelltemple@gmail.com and also reach him on Skype via: Dr.abu11
