Through darkness and light

Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding. 
In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. 

Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD, and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones.”— Prov. 3:5-8

Your care for me is greater than all the care I can take of myself.  If only my will remain right and firm toward You, Lord, do with me whatever pleases You. For whatever You shall do with me can only be good.

If You wish me to be in darkness, I shall bless You. And if You wish me to be in light, again I shall bless You. If You stoop down to comfort me, I shall bless You, and if You wish me to be afflicted, I shall bless You forever.” — Thomas a Kempis, Imitation of Christ, Bk. III, ch. XVII
