Whatever you give

I came naked from my mother’s womb, and I will be naked when I leave.
The Lord gave me what I had, and the Lord has taken it away.
Praise the name of the Lord!
(Job 1:21; NLT).

 1. Whatever you give,
And whatever you take,
I will face it all, Father,
And praise you.

2. Whatever you give,
And whatever you take,
I know you will work
For my good.

3. Whatever you give,
And whatever you take,
I will bear and accept it
As part of your plan.

4. Whatever you give,
And whatever you take,
I will thank you for everything,
Trusting your love.


Where once there were thorns, cypress trees will grow.
Where nettles grew, myrtles will sprout up.
These events will bring great honour to the Lord’s name;
they will be an everlasting sign of his power and love.
(Isaiah 55:13; NLT).



1. To keep me from becoming proud, I was given a thorn in my flesh… Three times I begged the Lord to take it away. Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me… for when I am weak, then I am strong (2 Corinthians 12:7-10; NLT). 

Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. Everything in the heavens and on earth is yours, O Lord, and this is your kingdom. We adore you as the one who is over all things (1 Chronicles 29:11; NLT). 

2. We know that in all things God works for good with those who love him (Romans 8:28; GNT).

3. You cannot be my disciple unless you carry your own cross and follow me (Luke 14:27; CEV).

People cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end (Ecclesiastes 3:11; NLT).

The Lord will work out his plans for my life (Psalm 138:8; NLT).

God saved us and called us to live a holy life… That was his plan from before the beginning of time – to show us his grace through Jesus Christ (2 Timothy 1:9; NLT).

“I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope” (Jeremiah 29:11; NLT).

4. My child, don’t reject the Lord’s discipline, and don’t be upset when he corrects you. For the Lord corrects those he loves, just as a father corrects the child in whom he delights (Proverbs 3:11-12; 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).

Trust in God and trust also in me (John 14:1; NLT).
