It is useless to get up early and stay up late in order to earn a living. God takes care of His own, even while they sleep.
No one else can really know how sad or happy you are.
If only I might have an answer to my prayer, and God would give me my desire! If only he would be pleased to put an end to me; and would let loose his hand, so that I might be cut off!
And not only so, but let us have joy in our troubles: in the knowledge that trouble gives us the power of waiting; And waiting gives experience; and experience, hope: And hope does not put to shame; because our hearts are full of the love of God through the Holy Spirit which is given to us.
You, Lord, are the light that keeps me safe. I am not afraid of anyone. You protect me, and I have no fears.
Some people trust the power of chariots or horses, but we trust you, Lord God. Others will stumble and fall, but we will be strong and stand firm. Give the king victory, Lord, and answer our prayers.
