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).
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.
