"For every pain that we must bear, for every care, there is a reason. For every hurt, for every plight, for every lonely pain racked night, there is a reason. But if we trust God, it will work out for good. God knows the reason."
Yea, thou I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for thou are with me: thou rod and thou staff they comfort me. Psalms 23:4
