The Comfort of Brotherhood

The Comfort of Brotherhood

In this life, we are not promised an easy road and we know trials will come our way. We have hope in Christ knowing that the war has been won yet we must endure till we are called home.   In the midst of all the pain, grief, tears and tribulation how does one endure when our cries to God feel unanswered?  God loves us so much that He died for us so that we may have a relationship with Him.
