#3 My Bible

Here are more words written in the extra pages of my Bible. I wrote these following in my Bible on 4-20-04. I was reading the book Calm My Anxious Heart and thought I might need to read these words in the future. I have read and reread these words many times.

In Times of trouble, say, "First he brought me here. It is by his will I am in this
strait place; in that I will rest. " Next, "He will keep me here in his love, and give
me grace in this trial to behave as his child." Then say, "He will make the trial a
blessing, teaching me lessons he intends me to learn, and working in me the grace
he means to bestow. "And last say, "In his good time he can bring me out again.
How and when, he knows." Therefore say, "I am here

1. by God's appointment,
2. in his keeping,
3. under his training,
4. for his time.

PS I am clueless on why the words are not filling in each line.
