When we’re facing a situation that’s out of our control, it’s natural to have feelings of fear. But we have something greater that we can put our faith in. When you’re feeling worried, anxious, and scared, we can trust in what Jesus has to say about walking through an uncertain part of life. “Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me” (Psalm 23:4). The next time you’re dealing with times of uncertainty, take a deep breath, consult this list, and remember that God is greater than anything and everything that’s happening around you.
