Hold fast to His dear hand

"Do not look forward to the changes and chances of this life with fear; rather, look to them with full hope that, as they arise, God, whose you are, will deliver you out of them. He has kept you hitherto -- do you but hold fast to His dear hand, and He will lead you safely through all things; and, when you cannot stand, He will bear you in His arms. Do not look forward to what may happen tomorrow; the same everlasting Father who cares for you to-day will take care of you to-morrow, and every day. Either He will shield you from suffering. or He will give you unfailing strength to bear it. Be at peace then, and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations."  ~Saint Francis de Sales 

I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.  ~Jeremiah 31:3
