There is nothing-

There is nothing-
no circumstance, no trouble, no testing-
that can ever touch me until, first of all, it has
gone past God and past Christ, right through to me. 
If it has come that far, it has come with a great purpose,
which I may not understand at the moment.  But as I refuse
to become panicky, as I lift up my eyes to Him and accept it as
coming from the throne of God for some great purpose of blessing to
my own heart, no sorrow will ever disturb me, no trial will disarm me, no
circumstance will cause me to fret, for I shall rest in joy of what my Lord is.
That is the rest of victory.

A favorite prayer of mine from Alan Redpath.
