I am extremely terrified of the things I hear on the news about things like the incident in France. I just get so scared and try to remind myself I have to trust in God but I am still frightened! any advice please? :/

Well. I think that theres two things to think about.
1) God uses bad things to make good things (Check out Romans 8:28)
Basically there could be a hidden element that God wants to use from that situation to bring good to the world.
Ex: Let’s say the Boston bombing in 2013. A boy from my town over here in California was seriously injured, but it brought my little town together because we all wanted to help the family and so because of that i think much of my town was able to realize how much such tragedies really affect people and that we can’t do things without each other.

2) On my personal belief, sometimes i think that you need bad things in order for there to be good things. It’s the yin-yang theory. Because if everything was just good, then would good really exist? So i think you kind of need a little bit of bad to realize when things are good.

Idk if that helps, but i thought i’d share my thoughts for you to consider.

I agree with pjbaseballgirl. But also think about it,How can we connect with other people if not through the worst of things? I would not have the relationships i have now if there were no such thing as bad. Think about it, we can also grow closer to God when things are the worst.
