My mind is not empty, but crammed full,
like a dresser drawer full of old programs
and garments needing patches.
At times when the way ahead,
or even the next step,
assure me that You know what is to come;
that You envision
a plan to prosper me and not to harm me,
to give me a future full of hope.
“Let us adore the designs of this good Master and be resigned to His Holy Will.”
“Our dear Lord has preserved us, and at this moment, eleven o'clock in the morning, everything leads us to hope that the worst is over.”
“...we can rely on [God's] assistance - assistance of which we have now greater need than ever before...”
“...I told her she had absolutely nothing to do but to place herself in the hands of God.”
“Trusting all your affairs to [God]...you will see that all will be well.”
“Do not press matters; be patient, be trustful.”
“Love all in God and for God, and all will be well.”
“We had but one dollar remaining... and we did not know where to get a cent for the want of the house. Still, how could I mistrust Divine Providence?”
“... beseech [God] for the light, the grace, the strength we need to do in all things [God's] will.”
“...your heart will tell you what to do...”
