The Bible verse we have chosen is Jeremiah 17:7-8 which explains how those who trust in the Lord are like trees planted by water, who’s roots reach deep into the water, which supplies the tree with nourishment allowing it to grow. Those who trust in God and rely on Him, know when obstacles occur, God will always be with them. They will not fear what may happen because they know God will be with them always. This allows them to live confidently and not fear the future.
