Commit your ways to the LORD!

Life always seems to be ever changing for me and my family! Especailly the last 3 years have been rocky with health of my mom, miscarriage for me, and just other things. Life may be taking my family down a rough road again and I don't always know how to deal or how to trust the Lord with it all. First off...when my mother had breast cancer 2 1/2 years ago....I never got mad at God. I cried my eyes out and was scared and terrified of the unknowing of it all...but I never was mad at him for my mom's cancer. I struggled a lot with giving my fears and lack of strength to him...but I felt he drew me closer to Him through that time. That he changed my thoughts on life....money....future...family...love. I never have been the same and I thank the Lord for that. I would never ask for my mother to go through what she went through...EVER again. But God grew all of us through it and I know that God has already used her cancer to be a light in other people's lives as well.
As God may take me and my family down another difficult road, He keeps bringing this bible verse to my mind and it bring me comfort.
"Commit your ways to the Lord, TRUST ALSO IN HIM, and He will do it" Psalm 37:5
This verse encourages me to rest in the Lord...commit all my fears to him, and to TRUST HIM!!! I am so very thankful for God's word and for it's comfort and guidence in my life! I pray that my whole life will be centered around this verse!!
