Changes and Chances of Life

Me: I got a lot to do today, so I got started early.

Prodigal: Don’t forget some words of wisdom for the day.

Me: I have time for that.

This is from St. Francis De Sales

Do not look forward to the changes and chances of this life in fear; rather look to them with full hope that, as they arise, God, whose you are, will deliver you out of them. He has kept you hitherto,–do you but hold fast to His dear hand, 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 my happen to-morrow; the same everlasting Father who cares for you to-day, will take care of you to-morrow, and every day. Either he will shield you from suffering, or He will give you unfailing strength to bear it. Be at peace then, and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations.

Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be like-minded one toward another, according to Christ Jesus

Romans 15:5
