Adapt an attitude of praise and thanksgiving when troublesome times appear, for they are but a vapor in time and you will see them no more.
My children tend to think first, then pray later. I want you to practice prayer and allow your thoughts to be that of meditation on My Word. For this strange thing that has come upon you is not anything that has missed My notice. I have already prepared the balance for you. It is in trust and faithfulness that you come through to the other side of it unscathed.
Much time is wasted toiling and fretting–this is needless; for your Father careth for you. I will tend to you. Come to Me, you who are weary and burden-laden and I will give you rest.
