WFW: Don't Let Your Heart Be Troubled


All the experts say don't leave your child without warning them that you are leaving.     That is what this verse is all about.   In this entire chapter, Jesus had been telling his disciples that he was going to be leaving them but that he would be returning one day for them.    It kind of reminds me of a mom leaving her child at the nursery at church or dropping her child off at school.      That anxiety.    That fear.     That worry of being left by their security blanket.

I want Jesus as my security blanket.      If I have any fear in my life that is the kind of fear I want it to be... the fear of being separated from my Lord.

very good verse! i'm very cautious when it comes to my children and don't want them to have fear of abandonment like I do, so thanks for the great reminder that God doesn't want us to feel that way either!

"Let not your hearts be troubled, ye believe in God." I always sing this one too!

I love what comes before it also. "Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you." Sounds like you could use some peace in your life right now too.

I love your metaphor of the security blanket!
