His friend joined him and watched the glowing embers. He sat silent for a moment then looked at him.

“I know that look. You’re going to tell me to just trust God.”

His friend didn’t respond. He took a sip of his coffee and nodded.

“I don’t see how things could possibly work out. It’s been like this for years.”

“God does,” his friend said.

For nothing will be impossible with God.” – Luke 1:37 (NASB)

Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; For the LORD GOD is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation.”- Isaiah 12:2 (NASB)
