One of the most difficult times to attempt trusting in goodness is during, or immediately after, a tragedy when our thoughts and emotions wrestle with the apparent absence of any goodness at all. Might we be able to walk through our challenges with more courage if we had a deep-seated conviction that goodness is available, despite our difficulties? Possibly. But, trusting in the presence of goodness takes practice, as it does any new skill. When done regularly, it can develop into a lifelong habit.
