    This is one of my favorite scriptures. It is comforting and encouraging to know that no matter what I am going through or what a situation looks like, God does not want me to be troubled with it. It's good to know that I serve a heavenly Father that always has my back, even when it is against the wall. Thank you Lord for being the owesomeness God that you are,
