In life, when we are in trouble or when we are facing challenges that are shaking our faith, we often need someone that we can lean on. We need our friends and family to make us feel good. However, even if we need them, they too have problems like us. They are humans just like us too who faces many challenges in their lives and they also need someone whom they can lean on like us.
What are we going to do then? Who can we ask for help from and who can be there for us when everyone and everything in life is failing? If we take the time to carefully listen to what our heart speaks, we’ll know that it is leading us to God. God is the only one we can lean on when we are facing troubles.
