and Savior ... our lives will instantly become a path of "smooth
sailing" and that all our challenges and problems will disappear.
the bible teaches us differently ... it not that all our problems
vanish, but rather that we have an awesome, loving God ... that is
faithful to the end.
2 Timothy 2: 11-13
For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him. If we suffer,
we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us. If
we believe not, yet he stays faithful: he cannot deny himself
