Be at peace


Do not look forward in fear
to the changes of life;

Rather look to them
with full hope that as they arise,

     God, whose very own you are,
will lead you safely
through all things;

And when you cannot stand it,
God will carry you
in His arms.

Do not fear what may happen tomorrow;

The same everlasting Father
who cares for you today

     will take care of you
today and every day.

He will either shield you
from suffering
or will give you
unfailing strength to bear it.

Be at peace
and put aside
all anxious thoughts
and
imaginations.

St. Francis de Sales
