If nobody ever told you, I'm telling you now. You will suffer problems that God will not remove, no matter how hard you pray. It doesn't mean he doesn't love you or that he lacks the power to do what he chooses. Trust him, even when you don't understand.
It's not that following Jesus gives you an easier life. It's that Jesus supplies everything you need, every day of your life.
They say time flies when you're having fun. But life isn't always fun, time doesn't always fly, and when we are in pain or trouble, a single moment can last an eternity. What do you do, when pain comes for a visit and never leaves?
