It all just seems to hit you at once, and you have no idea what to do; other than to curl up into a ball and do nothing. Well, fear no more, because if you feel this way, there is something to help you, and that is God. He’s a great guy and will always be by your side to get you through not only this stressful time but at all times. Here are some great verses to help you calm down and de-stress.
