“When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.”– Psalm 94:19
Jesus said, in this world we would have troubles. He didn’t promise to take us out of this world, or to take away our problems, but He did promise to walk with us through every valley, to catch every tear, and to comfort, guide, and help us as we trust in His Word.

This quote by President Abraham Lincoln reminds us of that. It’s part of a proclamation he made to the nation, asking everyone to humble ourselves, confess our national sins, and pray for clemency and forgiveness. I believe his proclamation is still relevant today.
