and send Timothy to you. Timothy, our brother, works with us for God and helps us tell people the Good News about Christ. We sent him to strengthen and encourage you in your faith so none of you would be upset by these troubles. You yourselves know that we must face these troubles.
1 Thessalonians 3:2-3 (NCV)
Our faith and confidence are strengthened when we are able to cast aside our worries and rely on God to help us through troubling times.
