You have held my eyelids open; I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
Jesus told us where to place our faith when trouble comes. He said, “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.” (John 14:1) He is the only founder of a religion who said He would prove who He was by rising from the dead. And He did. He didn’t just make promises, He keeps them.

Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear
by Max Lucado
Each sunrise seems to bring fresh reasons for fear.They’re talking layoffs at work, slowdowns in the economy, flare-ups in the Middle East, turnovers at headquarters, downturns in the housing market, upswings in global warming. The plague of our day, terrorism, begins with the word terror. Fear, it seems, has taken up a hundred-year lease on the building next door and set up shop. Oversized and rude, fear herds us into a prison of unlocked doors. Wouldn’t it be great to walk out?
