If I am in sickness, my sickness may serve Him;
in perplexity, my perplexity may serve Him;
if I am in sorrow, my sorrow may serve Him.
My sickness, or perplexity, or sorrow
may be necessary causes of some great end,
which is quite beyond us. He does nothing in vain.”
~ John Henry Newman
My suffering was good for me,
for it taught me to pay attention to your decrees.
- Psalm 119:71 NLT
