Trust in the Lord

The scriptures tell us that if we trust in the Lord, we will be happy. Sometimes when we are worried or frightened, we need to remember that Heavenly Father loves us and that we need to pray to and trust in Him. Here are twelve scriptures that tell about trusting the Lord. Find them in the Bible and Book of Mormon. Memorize one of them. Fill in the blank spaces from the scriptures, then find the same words in the letter square by reading forward, backward, down, up, and diagonally.
