what am i worried about, anyway? :)

Do not let your hearts be troubled.
Trust in God; trust also in Me.
In My Father's house are many rooms;
if it were not so, I would have told you.
I am going there to prepare a place for you.
And if I go and prepare a place for you,
I will come back and take you to be with Me
that you also may be where I am.

You know the way to the place where I am going.

--- John 14:1-4 :)

And I will ask the Father,
and He will give you another Counselor
to be with you forever --- the Spirit of truth.

The world cannot accept Him,
because it neither sees Him nor knows Him.

But you know Him

for He lives with you
and will be in you.

--- John 14:16-17

Peace I leave with you;
My peace I give you.
I do not give to you as the world gives;
Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

--- John 14:27

(From the NIV Study Bible: 

"Jesus' peace is real and present; the world can only express a longing or a wish.")

You heard Me say, 'I am going away and I am coming back to you.'
If you loved Me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father,
for the Father is greater than I.

I have told you now before it happens,
so that when it does happen you will believe.
I will not speak with you much longer, for the prince of this world is coming. He has no hold on Me, but]the world must learn that I love the Father and that I do exactly what My Father has commanded Me.

--- John 14:28-31a
