In All Your Trouble Seek God

Robert Salmon Storm at Sea

In all your trouble you should seek God. You should not set him over against your troubles, but within them. God can only relieve your troubles if in your anxiety you cling to Him. Trouble should not really be thought of as this thing or that in particular, for our whole life on earth involves trouble; and through the troubles of our earthly pilgrimage we find God.

– Augustine of Hippo (Painting by Robert Salmon, “Storm at Sea”)
