Let us hold unwaveringly....

Therefore, brothers, since through the blood of Jesus we have confidence of entrance into the sanctuary by the new and living way he opened for us through the veil, that is, his flesh, and since we have "a great priest over the house of God," let us approach with a sincere heart and in absolute trust, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed in pure water. Let us hold unwaveringly to our confession that gives us hope, for he who made the promise is trustworthy.

Hebrews 10:19-23

Complete Surrender

This is my goal! To be as relaxed and surrendered as this little fellow!
When my soul has reach this state, I'll know I'm doing okay. :)
Trusting God and resting in Him....
...only then will nothing disturb my peace.

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28

God alone suffices

Let nothing disturb thee;
Let nothing dismay thee;
All things pass; God never changes.
Patience attains all that it strives for.
He who has God finds he lacks nothing:
God alone suffices.

~St. Teresa of Avila

Putting your trust in Him...

Whatever your difficulty, you have two options, you can worry and assume that Jesus no longer cares, or you can resist fear, putting your trust in him. When you feel like panicking, confess your need for God and then trust him to care for you.

Jesus was in the stern, asleep on a cushion. They woke him and said to him, "Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?" He woke up, rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, "Quiet! Be stil!" The wind ceased and there was great calm. Then he asked them, "Why are you terrified? Do you not yet have faith?" They were filled with great awe and said to one another, "Who then is this whom even wind and sea obey?" ~ Mark 4:38-41

Complete and Perfect in God's All-Seeing Eyes

"Things were in God's plan which I had not planned at all. I am coming to the living faith and conviction that - from God's point of view - there is no chance, and that the whole of my life, down to every detail, has been mapped out in God's divine providence and makes complete and perfect sense in God's all-seeing eyes." - St. Edith Stein

Hoping in God alone

"I feel a great desire to abandon myself with greater trust to the Divine Mercy and to place my hope in God alone."
~ St. Padre Pio di Pietralcina
