Put trust in God-Rumi

Girl on the rock
Toa Heftiba

Listen, put trust in God, do not let your feet and hands tremble (with fear):
your daily bread is more in love with you than you (with it).
It is in love (with you) and is lingering (only) because it knows of your lack of self-denial, O trifler.
If you had any self-denial, the daily bread would come and throw itself upon you as lovers do.
What is this feverish trembling for fear of hunger?
In (possession of) trust in God one can live full fed.- Rumi

Mathnawi V 2852-2854
