Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him (Psalm 37:7; NIV).

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

Enjoy prosperity while you can, but when hard times strike, realise that both come from God. Remember that nothing is certain in this life (Ecclesiastes 7:14; NLT).

When your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow (James 1:3; NLT).


I sit with light
And darkness;

I sit with gold
And dross.

I sit with health
And sickness;

I sit with gain
And loss.

I sit with joy
And sorrow;

I sit with love
And hate.

I sit with good
And bad, Lord;

I sit with life –
And wait.
