Nothing happens in your life that is beyond God's control.
When you go through a hard time, God is never caught off guard. The truth is He wants to use it to take you to a new level in your relationship with Him. That's when your challenge becomes a "test" that can actually strengthen your faith and trust in God. So resist the urge to panic and instead praise God for the good thing He's doing in your life while He's bringing you through the storm.
Remember what the Word says:
He who began a good work in you will continue...developing...and perfecting and bringing it to a full completion in you. Phil 1:6
The fact that God is doing a "work" in you is actually an encouraging thing. It's all about having the right perspective and trusting Him.
Remember, you are not going under, you are going through!
