Believe in God and do not be afraid of anything! Because God is greater than all and everything! The fact that we get upset shows that we do not trust our life in Christ. Know that nothing happens without a cause. Not a single leaf falls from a tree if God doesn’t want it. That is why you should not be upset about what is happening to you. That is how we are sanctified.
