When troubles come your way, what do you do? Do you run away or get mad? Or do you remain calm and pray to God for help? It is easier to say to be calm, but when we are in trouble we can’t, but when we have God, nothing can shake us. When we have God, we are certain that we can overcome all of our problems because with God nothing is impossible.
