Some of the most life-giving verses can be found in Romans 5 - as Paul walks us through our undeserved privilege that we have because of the righteousness that Jesus has given us.  You can lay down your trials, lay down you hopelessness because God brings JOY, and he brings PEACE.  He promised these to us - and His promises never fade or change.  So take refuge in the Lord for He greatly loves us (Psalm 118).
