On Complete Trust in God

Do not look forward to the trials and crosses of this life with dread and fear.
Rather look to them with full confidence that, as they arise,
God to Whom you belong, will deliver you from them.

He has guided and guarded you thus far in life.
Do you but hold fast to His dear hand, and He will lead you safely through all trials.
Whenever you cannot stand, He will carry you lovingly in His arms.

Do not look forward to what may happen tomorrow.
The same Eternal Father who cares for you today
will take good care of you tomorrow and every day of your life.
Either He will shield you from suffering or He will give you the unfailing strength to bear it.

Be at peace, then, and put aside all useless thoughts, vain dreads, and anxious imaginations.

--St. Francis de Sales,
Introduction to the Devout Life
