Jesus in silence my soul waits for you

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

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
