Let not your heart be troubled...it was a little message from God one morning as I was just about to face a new day. Hmmm was it even in the Bible? Yes it was, and I can't tell you how those six simple words have changed my thought patterns for the last three weeks. As I pondered those words, they became a choice I was going to have to make over and over again in the weeks ahead. But the choice NOT to let my heart be troubled proved a great way to navigate...trouble. Sounds awfully simplistic I know, but for me God has used these words to help me grow into a new level of trust in Him.
As I was sharing this with a blogging friend of mine this evening who is facing a whole lot of trouble. I realized it maybe helpful to some other folks out in blogland. We all get to face various levels of trouble at one time or another. Some seasons can get pretty rough...I know. But here is the good news...Let NOT your heart be troubled!
These words are found 2x in John 14
