Do Not Look with Fear

Do not look with fear

on the changes and chances of this life;

rather look to them with full faith that as they arise,
God — whose you are — will deliver you out of them.

He has kept you hitherto.
Do not but hold fast to His dear hand,
and he will lead you safely through all things;
and when you can not stand, He will bear you in His arms.

Do not anticipate what will happen tomorrow.
The same ever last ing Father who cares for you today
will take care of you tomor row and every day.
Either He will shield you from suf fering or
He will give you unfail ing strength to bear it.

Be at peace, then, and put aside all anxious thoughts
And imaginations.

– St. Francis de Sales
