 Safe Keeping
Do not look forward to the changes and the chances of this life in fear; rather
Look to them with full hope that, as they arise, God, whose you are, will deliver you out of them. He is your keeper. He has kept you hitherto.

Do you but hold fast to His dear hand, and He will lead you safely through all things;
And when you cannot stand, He will bear you in his arms. Do not look forward to what may happen tomorrow.

Our Father will either shield you from suffering, or He will give you strength to bear it.
Sir Francis de Sales
