Do not look forward to the changes and unknown of this life in fear; rather look to them with full hope that, as the arise, God, whose you are, will deliver you out of them. He is your Keeper. He has kept you hitherto. Do you but hold fast to His dear hand and trust in Him, and He will lead you safely through all things; and, when you cannot stand, He will bear you in His arms. Do not look forward to what may happen tomorrow. Our Father will either shield you from suffering, or He will give you strength to bear it. He will be with you and keep you by His mighty power no matter what circumstance of life you may be going through right now as well as in the future. whether small or great a problem the Lord cares for you and will be with you through it all.
-Francis De Sales (slightly revised.)
