Prayer

Ups and downs

To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under the heaven (Ecclesiastes 3:1; KJV).

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

Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows (John 16:33; NLT).

Lord,
Thank you for the ups and downs
Of life –

For all my brightest days,
And darkest nights;

The times of deep depression,
And of joy;

Of dread, and bliss,
Of ecstasy, and grief.

Thank you for that all I experience,
Good and bad,

For these things help to make me
Who I am.
