At times, life will throw us curve balls, and we will be taken totally by surprise. We may feel discouraged, defeated and pressured on every side. Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians 4: 8-9 We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. The Christian, in the power of Christ, live victoriously in face of the most unfathomable problems. Let us be examples of the power of God living in us to a anxious world.
