God has created me
to do Him some 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, wherever 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.



John Henry Cardinal Newman
