“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.”
