    God is for all His creation with lots of love and compassion. We also can be as the disciples were if we just pick up Jesus cross and follow,trusting and believing. Our hearts and souls have to be connected to Christ. Doing the will and being obedient to His commandments knowing it shall come with some repercussion from some who will not be in agreement. Trust, believe, being obedient, trust God
