We all face trials and tribulations throughout our lives. Because we are children of the Living God, we don’t have to face these times alone. Jesus always extends His nurturing hand to take us through the storm where we will find His serenity. Keep the faith and call on the Lord during your next storm and He will be there.

He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”
