“Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot
Keep it from themselves” Eleanor Roosevelt.
Trust is defined as; the “reliance on the integrity, strength, ability, surety, etc., of a person or thing; confidence” .it is also,” a person on whom or thing on which one relies”: by the dictionary definition of trust
Trust is the anchor of the soul, it is a beacon and hence, the place of faith in disease conditions. Trust in divine power is the last of the eight (8) laws or principles of health and healing. These health principles are well articulated in the NEW START acronym, although Trust in Divine powers is the last on the New Start acronym of simple health principles, I wish to assertively assure you that it(Trust in Divine Power) is not the least. To trust in the divine existence and power of God, the almighty creator and maker of all , is key to experiencing maximum potency of all the other principles of health, because all those other principles originated from God the maker of all things.
My simple Submission: The proper use and implementation of these simple principles of health and healing, as expressed in the NEW START and a firm trust in the Lord God who made all those stuffs, will not only add healthy life to your years, but maximum efficiency to your existence.

This medical potent factor is not scientifically provable but it has been clinically observed. Let us consider some of these brief quotations that convey a direct insight to the
