He spread His wings and caught me, He carried me on His pinions!

The LORD Gives and The LORD Takes Away.

If I see God in everything, He will calm and color everything I see!

Perhaps the circumstances causing my sorrows will not be removed
and my situation will remain the same, but if Christ is brought into my
grief and sorrow as my Lord and Master,
He will “surround me with songs of deliverance!” Psalm 32:7

To see Him and to be sure that His wisdom and power never fail and
His love never changes, to know that even His most distressing dealings with me
Are for my deepest spiritual gain, is to be able to say in the midst of bereavement,
Sorrow, pain, and loss, “The LORD gave and the LORD takes away;
May the name of the LORD be praised [blessed]!” Job 1:21

Seeing God in everything is the only thing that will make me loving and
patient with people who annoy and trouble me.

Then I will see others as the instruments God uses to accomplish His tender and
wise purpose for me, and I will even find myself inwardly thanking them for
The blessing they have become to me!
