blessed trust

blessed is the man who trusts in the lord, whose trust is in the lord. 
jeremiah 17:7

divine tranquillity grows from the life of god in the soul, which is the same as the life of pure love. why should a soul be otherwise than tranquil, which seeks for nothing but what comes in the providence of god; and which, forgetful of self, has nothing to do but to love? it has an innate conviction, strong as the everlasting foundations, that, if there is a god above us, all is well, all must be well. 
thomas c. upham
