R Brown is the pastor. Think about it: If we busy to pray, we are "Can God save me?" Fear is an ever-present part of the of many people: They worry about their health, safety or ty. The troubles of everyday life can cause times forget that God can save them completely in and spiritual aspects of life. His protection and part of the offer of salvation that He makes to all struggle and try to accomplish their deliverance throul own efforts. But God is the only Savior. As He told His Isaiah's time: "Now this is what the Lord says. He people of Jacob; He formed you, people of Israel. He sayS, be afraid, because I have saved you. I have called you and you are mine. When you pass through the waters, with you.'" (Isaiah 43:1-2a NCV) This is His promise to all time, to be with them and help them pass through bled waters of life.

All things will be possible For those who trust God; The faith as small as mus- tard seeds Grows strong in trial's sod. --Sper Trials are the soil in which faith grows. • Sunday morning Sis.
