A Collect for Finding Joy Even in Uncertainty

Loving Father, who is patient and kind with his children, may we be so trusting of your ways that even when we do not understand what you are doing, we may still find comfort and joy in the knowledge that you are doing what is good and right for your creation, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who humbled himself and was lifted up to your presence in the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘But they did not understand what he said to them. Then he went down with them and came to Nazareth, and was obedient to them. His mother treasured all these things in her heart.’ – Luke 2:50-51
