Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled
By Martha Smock

God can help and can heal any condition or situation, no matter how frightening or distressing the appearances. "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid." (John 14:27) "I am with you always." (Matthew 28:20)

If you are concerned or disturbed about something, say these words of Jesus over to yourself. Say them and listen to them. Think of the living, loving Christ speaking them to you, through you.

Let not your heart be troubled by sickness. The Christ is within you as healing life. There is nothing to fear, for with God all things are possible; with God there are no incurable conditions. The Christ is saying to you now, "You have been made well!"  (John 5:14)

Let not your heart be troubled by injustice or unfair treatment. Give everything over to the loving Christ and know that this Spirit is able to make all things right. Hold fast to your faith in God, to your faith in the good, and keep your heart and mind open to be forgiving, loving benediction of the Christ. You are beloved of God; you are one with the Christ. You are surrounded and enfolded by perfect peace that the world cannot give, the peace that is God's gift to your heart, mind and life.

"Jesus turned and seeing her He said, 'Take heart, daughter, your faith has made you well.' And instantly the woman was made well." --- Matthew 9:22
