"Out of life's misery, born of mans sin, a fuller, richer life begins. For when we are helpless with no place to go and our hearts are heavy and our spirits are low; if we place our poor broken lives in God's hands and surrender completely to His will and demands. The darkness lifts and the sun shines through and by His touch we are born anew. So praise God for the trouble that cuts like a knife and disappointments that shatter our lives. For with patience to wait and faith to endure,your life will be blessed and your future secure, For God is but testing your faith and your love before He appoints you to rise far above. All the small things that so sorely distress you, For God's only intention is to strengthen and bless you."
