Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV  Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
As a Widow of almost 2 years, if I have learned anything, I have learned to TRUST in God. The Bible lets us know that God watches over the fatherless and the widow.
In these 22 months, God has come through exceedingly and abundantly for my family. When sadness tries to overtake us, God gives us peace. When situations happen that threaten to steal our joy, God replenishes it. When we need food, He supplies. When we need protection, He protects us. When we needed to relocate back to Texas, God provided a way. When we needed shelter, God provided it. While I was in between jobs, God didn't skip a beat. We didn't want for anything. God blessed me with a job after being in Dallas for a little over a month. God has given us peace during this time. God has kept our joy full.
Now I have to be honest, the tears do come. My sons and I get overwhelmed with grief at times. Even in that, I trust in God to bring us out. When I don't feel like I can make it another day, hour or minute, I have to Trust in God to lift us out of the valley. What I'm trying to say is, no matter what is going on in your life, no matter what situation you find yourself in, continue to Trust in God. When you're in a situation and you don't know how you're going to make it, or how it will be resolved, TRUST GOD! Even when I don't umderstand and it doesn't make sense, I have to trust in God. And in order for me to trust God, I have to believe that He can do what He says He will do in His Word. He's concerned about you and he loves you. He will come through.
Psalms 5:11 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.
