God is with you even when you doubt

I must make a confession to you. I have had times of great doubt in my life. It has come as a result of my own foolishness. It has come when I have felt that God was not answering my prayers.

Johann Sebastian Bach as a Protestant composer and 'The Fifth Evangelist'

Johann Sebastian Bach was born to a musical family in Eisenach, Germany, in 1685.
