It is an unfortunate reality that we all will face obstacles sometime during our lives. Some of us may face financial troubles while others may suffer with physical troubles. Regardless of the problem, it can make us feel scared, alone, sad and angry.
Some people believe that once you become a Christian, all your problems go away. However believing in Jesus doesn’t mean your woes disappear, instead it means that you never have to go through anything alone. God wanted to make sure that His children always knew that they would be able to lean on Him during difficult times, so He filled the Bible full of wisdom on facing trials and tribulations. Here are just some of the bible verses that will help you.

1 Corinthians 10:13

1 Peter 1:6
