Just about all of us can relate to the Ray LaMontagne lyric in his song, "Trouble":
Trouble, trouble, trouble, trouble
Trouble been dogging my soul since the day I was born
If there’s anything that's certain in life it’s that … as long as you’re living … you WILL experience trouble. Pastor Mark Jobe says that part of being defiant is expecting trouble to come your way. But the trouble is … many people don’t anticipate it. And so, it has the potential to cause them to fall away from the faith because sometimes they expect that once they’ve become a Christian all their problems will magically go away. Our Bold Steps message is called … Living with Trouble.
