He didn’t guarantee us that we wouldn’t confront hard things, that we wouldn’t confront misfortune. He guaranteed He could never leave us or neglect us. Assuming you get some margin to search in the hardest most profound valleys, the coldest spots in this world, in the event that you require some investment to look, He is there.
