I wish I could say that life is simple but life is anything but simple.  We often time face problems in the world with our eyes focused on the problem and not on God.  Thats where I have been, wondering endlessly in the storm with my eyes focused on the storm.  It often time takes something of great magnitude to bring us to the realization that God is the answer.  I think as Christians we often think that the problems we face are not that bad and that we can handle them on our own.  When Jesus was crucified he called out to the father.  we must learn that in every storm there is only one answer.  Jesus!
