This Bible verse has become my go-to lately when I am feeling stressed or overwhelmed about anything. I’m a natural worrier and it seems like as soon as one stress is resolved, something else takes over in my mind. I don’t want to live my life this way, so I am trying to overcome my worry and anxiety. This verse shows me that no matter what is thrown my way, if my roots are deep in Him, I will overcome.
“They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”
Jeremiah 17:8 NIV
Lord, let each trial that I face remind me that I am never defeated when my hope is in you.
