In today's part of the novena, we are asked to trust God that His will is the best for us. St. Therese, even when she was sick and sad, knew the plans God had for her, and looked at every day as an opportunity to say "yes" to Him and do what He wanted her to do.
Loving God, St. Therese experienced each day as a gift from You, as a time for loving others. May we, too, see each new day as a single moment of saying "yes" to Your will in our lives. Amen.
