He knows what He is about

GOD HAS CREATED ME

to do Him so definite service

He has committed some work to me

which He has not committed to another

I HAVE A MISSION

I may never know it in this life

but I shall be told it in the next

I AM A LINK IN A CHAIN

a bond of connection between persons

He has not created me for naught

I shall do good-I shall do His work

I shall be an angel of peace

a preacher of truth in my own place

while not intending it

if I do but keep His commandments

THEREFORE 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

He may take away my friends

He may throw me among strangers

He may make me feel desolate

make my spirits sink

hide my future from me-still

HE KNOWS WHAT HE IS ABOUT

–Cardinal Newman
