We see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.
Fear not [says Jesus]; I am the first and the last: I am the One who lives, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and I have the keys of hell and of death.
No matter what life brings, God can be with you. We go through the "valley of the shadow of death," we do not stay in it. God and His strength may seem distant, but they never are. We may seem alone, but that is not true. We have Him, His guidance, and His care.
The results of life taking a "turn for the worse" may surprise you:
Jesus, dying...Jesus, rising from the dead, and seated at the right hand of the Father...Jesus, holding the keys of hell and death for all mankind. Including you. His sufferings meant something. So do yours.
