Is your heart troubled?
Are you beset with problems and challenges?
The past week has been a “perfect storm” of problems and challenges for me. I hope you can take comfort as I do in these 15 Bible verses from the Old and New Testaments:

Jesus, I trust in You!
May the peace and love of our Lord Jesus the Christ be with you,
