He doesn’t say that you’re going to escape tension…

This is the power that God gives you. He doesn’t say that you’re going to escape tension; he doesn’t say that you’re going to escape disappointment; he doesn’t say that you’re going to escape trials and tribulations. But what religion does say is this: that if you have faith in God,  that God has the power  to give you a kind of inner equilibrium through your pain. — MLK, Guidelines for a Constructive Church
