Walking Humbly with Christ in Times of Trouble

We all experience times of worry. Our faith does not protect us from problems but rather it helps us get through them. We are children of God, so we should trust our God. In prayer we pour out our troubles to God and seek His guidance and grace to deal with them. Even in the midst of our troubles, if we are willing to trust God, we will discover unexpected blessings and peace within. Are you willing to trust God, our Father?
-Deacon Jim Renwick
