Tranquility is essential for the soul to grow and flourish, but adversity is the gauge by which the extent and limits of its peace is measured.
The heart which lacks peace within creates strife without.
My heart is filled with a noble theme;
from within mine eyes do gleam —
this day I am Supremely blessed.
Whatever life may throw my way,
it is with confidence that I say,
“This too shall pass; it is no test!”
For this I know and understand —
that my life rests within God’s hand —
and so I need not be distressed.
