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 my mission. I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection
between persons. He has not created me for nothing.
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 word.
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.
If I am in perplexity, my perplexity may server Him.
If I am in sorrow, my sorrow may serve Him.
He does nothing in vain.
He knows what He is about."
- Blessed John Henry Newman (attrib)
