He himself gives life and breath to everything,
and he satisfies every need
(Acts 17:25; NLT).
1. Help me, Lord,
That you, alone,
Give all I have,
2. And, that you also
For every life
Brings good and bad.
3. Help me to accept
With gladness, thanks,
And constant prayer,
4. Confident, Lord,
That you bring blessings
In the end,
From all we bear.
1. The Lord gives, and the Lord takes away. May the name of the Lord be blessed (Job 1:21; NET).
2. When times are good, be happy; but when times are bad, consider this: God has made the one as well as the other (Ecclesiastes 7:14; NIV).
3. I want your will to be done, not mine (Matthew 26:39; NLT).
Rejoice always, pray constantly, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; RSV).
4. We know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good (Romans 8:28; AMP).

So true, our Father God knows what is best for us – even when it does not appear so. “Teach me Father how to stand firm in you!” 🙏
