OVER THE YEARS, you have learned this important truth: Faith does not guarantee that life will turn out the way you hoped. Even in your later years, life is not fair. But your faith offers another truth: God will never leave or forsake you. Praise God for that!
“Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
—1 Thessalonians 5:18
