I, myself have been through a lot in the past and there are still things that are happening that are out of my control. With all the troubles that come in my life, it is God who I draw my strength from. I think there is an importance of knowing where we draw our strength. We should look to God as our source of strength. God can bring others into our life to encourage us, but when there is no one else, God will always be our strength. No matter what you go through, look to Him, who is a Comforter.
