Submit to God and be at peace with him (Job 22:21; NIV).

The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised (Job 1:21; NIV).

Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble? (Job 2:10; NIV).

For affliction does not come from the dust, nor does trouble spring from the ground; yet man is born to trouble, as the sparks fly upward (Job 5:6-7; NKJV).

God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation (James 1:12; NLT).

We cannot be at peace
With ourselves,
Or with God,
Until we embrace
Our physical and mental suffering
As part of life,
And part of who we are.
