Trust


Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. Proverbs 3:5

“This text will help you avoid a nervous breakdown. It will stimulate your recovery if you have had one. A famous neurologist, specialist in nervous breakdowns, often ‘prescribes’ this text for his patients. He writes the words on a card and instructs his patient to commit them to memory and repeat them until they are indelibly printed on the subconscious mind.

“The cause of much nervous trouble is frustration. And the antidote to frustration is a calm faith, not in your own cleverness, or in hard toil, but in God’s guidance. The cure of frustration is the belief that God will help you obtain your heart’s desire. Trust in God with all your heart, and you will be able to keep on working in health and happiness for long years to come."
-- Dr. Norman Vincent Peale

Proverbs 3:5 is one of my favorite verses, and it's been in my mind a lot lately.

Thanks for posting this.
