Trouble Ahead (Numbers 14:9)


Inevitably, trouble will invade our lives: A bad report from a medical test, the betrayal of a trusted friend, a child who rejects us, or a spouse who leaves us. The list of possibilities is long, but there are only two options: forge ahead on our own, or turn to God.

In this world of sin and trouble

Where so many ills are known,

If I shun the ways of evil,

I am kept by Him alone. – Smith

God’s presence is a life preserver that keeps the soul from sinking in a sea of trouble.
