"Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me."
This trust we have been contemplating- it was present before Jesus, but here Jesus himself tells us to trust. He tells the disciples they need not fear death. Jesus will be at the end of that road. It is this same trust that led the early believers to travel all over and risk their lives for what they now knew to be the truth. They had faith, and so they needed to trust. As I have come to remember in this last week: trust is not only a noun; it is also a verb.
Lord God, I pray that my life, my words and my actions reflect my trust in you. If I can live in that trust, I know I will have peace. Lord, may your peace make itself known to others I meet. Amen
