“The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon Him, to all that call upon Him in truth.”

Psalm 145:18

“I sought the Lord, and He heard me and delivered me from all my fears.”

Psalm 34:4

“Be Thou O Rock of Ages, nigh!

So shall each murmuring thought be gone;

And grief and fear and care shall fly,

As clouds before the mid-day sun.”       C. Wesley

“Take courage and turn your troubles, which are without remedy, into material or spiritual progress.  Often turn to our Lord, who is watching you, poor frail little being as you are, amid your labours and distractions.  He sends you help, and blesses your affliction.  This thought should enable you to bear your troubles patiently and gently, for love of Him who only allows you to be tried for your own good.  Raise your heart continually to God, seek His aid, and let the foundation stone of your consolation be your happiness in being His.  All vexations and annoyances will be comparatively unimportant while you know that you have such a Friend, such a Stay, such a Refuge.  May God be ever in your heart.

Francis De Sales
