branches1What do we do when we face loss

, uncertainty, calamity, or death? Where do we go for help? Who do we cling to? Throughout scriptures God tells us he is our comforter; in the New Testament, Jesus tells us God is sending us his very own Spirit to be with us and comfort us. All circumstances in our lives God has dominion over. Christ is the rock from where we are hewn, God is the Father of all mercies, He alone has a steadfast love for us.
