Do not fight

It is useless for you to fight
against my will
(Acts 26:14; NLT).

Do not fight
Against God’s will –

Accept all that he sends,
Both ‘good’ and ‘bad’

With thankful heart;
Praying and rejoicing without cease –

For all his gifts bring wisdom,
Truth, and peace.

I create the light and make the darkness.
I send good times and bad times.
I, the Lord, am the one who does these things
(Isaiah 45:7; NLT).

In all things God works for the good
of those who love him

(Romans 8:28; NIV).

Thank you

Give thanks in all circumstances
(1 Thessalonians 5:18; NIV).

1. Thank you, Lord,
For all you give
To us, both good
And bad.

2. Thank you, Lord,
For all you send:
The joyful,
And the sad.

3. Thank you, Lord,
For all you grant:
For life, and health,
And loss.

4. Thank you, Lord,
For all you share:
Our fear, our pain,
Our cross.
