Divorce occurs for many reason and the effects of divorce are often devastating. One common reason for divorce is a lack of reciprocity.

God sent Jesus to earth and in His life dealt with various trials and tribulations He had cares just like you and I do in this life. In this life we will have anxiety and concerns but God gives us assurance that He will never put more on us than we can handle and He is in control. The world however when faced with trials, often is not calm and will turn to doctors for prescriptions. I believe if we fully trust in God and His will we will not turn to man for drugs and alcohol but bend the knees in prayer and erect with joy because we are reminded of how He has been faithful thus far.
