“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. “

- John 14:1

I love this verse. It is so simple and it whispers the direction that I can take my worry… straight to Jesus. He is the kindest person I’ve known. I love that the prescription for feeling troubled is trust. It is easier said than done, but every time I lift my eyes from the circumstance that is troubling me to the One who can calm troubled waters and troubled hearts, I experience peace. It’s not that trusting God always changes my circumstances, but it changes my heart because as I choose to trust Him even in circumstances I can’t understand, I’m reminded that no matter what,  I am loved and I am not alone. Praying today that I will choose to trust rather than let trouble rule in my heart.
