Have I ever mentioned I *hate* change?
I fight it with all I have in me.
I am loyal to a fault because of it...
I want to fix it, to salvage it, to keep it
whatever *it* is...
I've had some news,
some quite unexpected news.
But a dear friend shared this
(in another context)
but how good is our God
I needed *this*
Do not look forward to the changes
and chances of this life in fear;
rather look to them with full HOPE,
that, as they arise,
whose you are,
will deliver you out of them.
He has kept you hitherto-do you but hold fast
to his dear Hand,
and He will lead you safely through all things;
when you cannot stand,
He will bear you in his arms,
Do not look forward to what may happen tomorrow;
the same everlasting Father who cares for you today,
will take care of you
tomorrow and every day.
Either He will shield you from suffering,
He will give you unfailing strength to bear it.
Be at peace then, and
put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations.
St. Francis DE SALES
Surely God is my salvation;
I will trust and not be afraid.
