For thousands of years people have learned to trust God through His Word. Today you can do the same.
Allow His words to speak to you. Understand that He knows about you. He cares for you, and wants the best for you and your life. He doesn’t promise us a serene life, but He does promise to calm the raging waters of the storm long enough for us to refocus on Him.
We have good days and bad days. But God’s Word outlasts them all. Put your trust in Him. He’ll never steer you wrong.
