” Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.  Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and turn away from evil.  It will be healing to your body and refreshment to your bones…  My son, do not reject the discipline of the Lord or loathe His reproof, for whom the Lord loves He reproves, even as a Father corrects the son in whom he delights.”  -Proverbs 3: 5-8, 11-12

“For the Lord is a sun and shield; the Lord gives grace and glory; no good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly.” – Psalm 84:11

 “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those He called according to His purpose.  For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren; and these whom He predestined, He also called; and these whom He called, He also justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified (!). What shall we say to these things?  If God is for us, who is against us?  He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for all of us, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?” -Romans 8: 28- 32
