Assumption-Florian Parish Bulletin May 26, 2019

“…do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.” (John 14:27)  Our limited human understanding cannot begin to understand the immense power of God. Instead of trusting in God, we think we can control every outcome. Do you want to make God laugh? Tell Him your plans. The next time worry, anxiety or fear creeps in, thank God for all He has given you and trust that He has a better plan for you.
