Memory Verse

“. . . I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life.”

Audio Icon   Psalm 143:8b



In this episode, Liz planned on making a serious movie with Morrie and Lucille. But things didn’t go as planned, and his funny out-takes become a big hit on the Internet. Liz learns to trust God, even when things go wrong.

Another word for trust is “faith.” Both words mean believing that what somebody says is true. Faith in God means believing his word, the Bible, and then doing what the Bible says. It’s easy to have faith when things are going well. But real faith will stay strong even when things don’t go as planned. Hebrews 11:6 says that “. . . without faith it is impossible to please God.” If you don’t trust him, you won’t do what his word tells you to do. And if you don’t do what his word tells you to do, you won’t be saved from the punishment for your sins.

Dig deeper into the importance of trusting the Lord by reading Proverbs 3:5-6; Romans 8:1; Romans 8:28.


What is happening in your life right now that isn’t going as planned?

  • Are your grades in school not what they should be?
  • Is a friend or family member upset with you about something?
  • Have your plans for the weekend fallen apart?

Life rarely goes exactly the way we want it to. We can be discouraged and angry. Or we can trust God and do the next right thing. How can you take your messed-up plans and turn them into something good? Talk to a trusted adult about a time when they trusted in God when things weren’t going according to plan.
