In Time of Trouble

In time of trouble say,
First:  He brought me here; it is by His will I am in this strait place:  in that I will rest.
Next:  He will keep me here in His love, and give me grace in this trial to behave as His child.
Then:  He will make the trial a blessing, teaching me the lessons He intends me to learn, and working in heavy_seasme the grace He means to bestow.
Last:  In His good time He can bring me out again – how and when He knows.

Say:  I am here
(1) by God’s appointment
(2) in His keeping
(3) under His training
(4) for His time
