The world may seem a crazy, out-of-control place—but only God can provide lasting comfort.
God can provide answers.
God can lead us to the wisdom, and the understanding, and the peace of mind and heart and soul, that we seek.

“Why does my spouse seem so distracted?”
“How can I feel closer to my kids and my family?”
“Why aren’t our elected politicians protecting our country from harm?”

“Why is there so much suffering in the world?”
“Are the socialists going to take over our great country and destroy it?”

“God, do you hear me? Do you hear my prayers?”
Pray, pray—and pray.
God hears you. God hears us.
He hears us every single day—and every single time we pray.
Stay focused on God.
Believe in the power of the Almighty. Believe in Jesus. Believe in the Holy Spirit.
As faith leader and evangelist Nick Hall wrote in Christian News Journal recently, “We are not meant to be alone, but to be in a community with other believers. When you let your guard down and follow Jesus—when you begin to let people into your life—it’s a game-changer.”
Pick up your Bible again.
Pick up your Bible right now.
Find comfort in the Word of God.
Know that He is with you, and with all of us, at every single moment of our lives.
God never lets us down.
God is here.
God hears the prayers of His people.
God is all-powerful.
From 1 Peter 3:12 (NIV): “For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”
