O God of peace, who hast taught us that in returning and rest we shall be saved, in quietness and confidence shall be our strength: By the might of thy Spirit lift us, we pray thee, to thy presence, where we may be still and know that thou art God ; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen .
I took some time to reflect on how my faith guides me during my life so I could offer some guidance to you. Maintain your faith at all times .

Joshua 1:9 Be strong and courageous; do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

Nehemiah 8 :10 Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength. Isaiah 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God . I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Exodus 15:2 The Lord is my strength and my song; he has given me victory.
God Allows Suffering to Bring Us Closer to Him And He often uses hard times to get our attention. When things are going great we are not so quick to turn to Him. When we finally surrender the need for control and give it over to God , He gets to do what He does best. And that’s a great place to be.
So one reason God allows emotional suffering in our lives is because he knows that sometimes there is nothing that will increase our passion to pursue him more than this pain . And when we seek the Lord and find his love and comfort, we experience far more joy and satisfaction in the Lord than the suffering we endured.
Trusting God’s character even when you don’t understand His actions is another way to trust God . God does not require nor ask us to fully comprehend him or understand all that he does. If he wanted us to know everything there is to know, he would have revealed everything there is to know.
