Saints Quotes and Bible Verses about trusting God

Here are some beautiful quotes and bible verses about trusting God during your “dark night of the soul” as what St. John of Cross called it. No one has not experienced difficulties in life not even the great ones, even our Lord Jesus Christ lived in poverty and sufferings on earth.

We live in a truly unique era, don’t we? An era that attacks the health of the mind and spirit. It has swept the waves of society like wildfire. Who better to call unto than those who have surpassed life’s temporary sufferings with great victory? The Saints!

What to do? Listen to the Eternal Truth, to the Word of God. We are placed on this earth to know, love, and serve God. We are here not to seek pleasure and wealth, but to work for our salvation. And that is the reality of your existence! Profit from your adversity by bearing them bravely!
