Our minds are like a war zone with thoughts ready to attack at any time and rob us of our peace. We soon discover trying to stop our thinking is about as helpful as a cow’s persistence to shoo flies away on a summer day. When we engage our insecurities and fears within our strength, it creates even more troubling anxiety. One nagging thought on top of another.
Jesus’s word to us is to unburden your mind and heart, let my love free you for there is nothing in this world that can quiet your soul. So don’t lose sight of me, trust me by releasing every thought and concern for I am present with you in every moment. There is no need to worry.
“I am leaving you with a gift-peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid. John 14:27 NLT
