But those who suffer he delivers in their suffering; he speaks to them in their affliction (Job 36:15; NIV).

Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain understanding, for she [wisdom] is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold. She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her (Proverbs 3:13-15; NIV).

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; NIV).

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:6-7; NIV).

It’s well worth
Having unpleasant experiences,
Uncomfortable emotions,
And years of therapy,
In order to gain insight
Into myself,
So I can slowly learn 

New ways of handling things
That have always been
Very painful and difficult
For me to manage,
Because of my past.

Thank you so much
For my life,
For everything I experience,
And for your long-term healing.
