1. Life means enjoying
Good things –
2. Perhaps even taking them
3. Then having to let go
Of what we did not want to lose.
4. It means struggling
To accept our losses,
5. And slowly learning
To be contented with our lot.
3. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised (Job 1:21; NIV).
4. The Lord your God is testing you to find out whether you love him with all your heart and with all your soul (Deuteronomy 13:3; NIV).
5. Be content with what you have (Hebrews 13:5; NET).
