“First, God brought me here;
It is by His will that I am in this difficult place
…in that I will rest.
Second, God will keep me here in His love,
And give me grace in this trial
…to behave as His child.
Third, God will make this trial a blessing,
Teaching me the lessons He intends me to learn
…and working in me the grace He means to bestow.
Fourth, in God’s good time,
He can bring me out again
…how and when He knows.
So, I am here:
…by God’s appointment
…in His keeping
…under His authority
…for His time.”

Treat others the same way you want them to treat you. ~Luke 6:31
Whoever gets sense loves his own soul;
he who keeps understanding will discover good.
Good sense makes one slow to anger,
and it is his glory to overlook an offense.
Listen to advice and accept instruction,
that you may gain wisdom in the future.
Many are the plans in the mind of a man,
but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.
