God has created me to do him some definite service …
I have my mission … he has not created me for naught.
I shall do good; I shall do his work …
I will trust him, whatever I am,
I can never be thrown away.
If I am in sickness, my sickness may serve him,
in perplexity, my perplexity may serve him.
If I am in sorrow, my sorrow may serve him.
He does nothing in vain …
He knows what he is about.
—John Henry Newman
