Thought for the week

There's a Reason For every pain that we must bear,

For every burden, every care -

There's a reason.

For every grief that bows the knee,

For every teardrop that is shed -

There's a reason.

For every hurt, for every plight,

For every lonely, pain-racked night -

There's a reason.

But if we trust God as we should,

All this must work out for our good.

He knows the reason.
