Should drama hint at an escalation to chaos unflappable souls reach for a salve.

Those who trust their God open His Word for their peace:

  • Look to the Lord and His strength; seek His face always. (Psalm 105:4)
  • Cast all your anxiety onto Him because He cares for you. (1 Peter 5:7)
  • Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you. (Hebrews 13:5)
  • Therefore I tell you - do not worry about your life ... (Matthew 6:25)
  • The Lord's discipline is our training ground, righteousness and peace are our harvests. (Hebrews 12:11)

The Last Word:

The strokes and scorns of our distress increase our capacity to be affected by Jesus.
