Ivan IV died without an heir early in the seventeenth century, the Time of Troubles commenced. The boyars tried to control government, while Sweden and Poland seized territory. In 1613, the boyars chose a member of the Romanov family, Michael, as tsar. The Time of Troubles ended without placing lasting constraints on the tsar's power.
"Yes, there will be stress and sorrow in life, and we will not always get the answers from heaven we prefer, but God will always give the answer we need–and with it He will give both strength and spiritual solace in all our times of trouble." –Elder Jeffrey R Holland, from "Times of Trouble: Spiritual Solace From the Psalms"
It's okay to grieve. It's okay to know that you loved deeply and are hurting because the one you loved is no longer able to be here with you. Embrace grief as a sign of your great love. Feel all the emotions that come with grief, experience it in the waves that it comes, and know that one day it will be okay. If not right now, then soon. - read: http://livepurposefullynow.com/how-to-thrive-in-times-of-trouble/
