Even though life can get challenging sometimes, as Christians we must remember that Jesus is greater than every hardship; he is victorious over every pain. Never underestimate God's power to deliver us from fear.
Jesus did the same when he was tempted by the devil in the desert. Despite being the Son of God, He used the authority of the Scriptures, and prayed.
We should remind ourselves constantly that God is watching over His children. Keep the faith, and let God’s word ground you and remind you that you are way stronger than you think.
As George Bannoura, the co-owner of Bethlehem Handicrafts, mentioned in Business Brief when he was hosted by Ryan Frazier about how the local small business has kept the faith through the pandemic:
"We could not do it and pass it without our faith. Faith is everything. This is the essence of our life, so without faith, we will not make it ... together we will pass through it. And as I mentioned before, as a community back home, we've been through a lot of difficult times in history, the only thing we have that helps us pass through all the difficult times is our faith. Faith is everything."

We hope these verses that will bring you love, serenity, and peace.
The LORD is my light and my salvation - so why should I be afraid? The LORD is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble?
2 Chronicles 7:13-14
"If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land."
"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."
"Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand."
"I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears."
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
"The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged."
"Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me."
