There truly is a peace that passes all human understanding when you have relationship with God. You know that no matter what happens, no matter what unforeseen circumstances come, you have a Support who will love you, uphold you, guide you, and heal you. Yes, life is hard. Yes, people can be difficult. Yes, you will have questions without answers. Yes, you will be confused and not always understand. But when you have God, you have everything you need to face all of this and be more than a survivor.
Romans 8:35-39: 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written: “For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” 37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
