A great man does not lose his self-possession when he is afflicted


"A great man does not lose his self-possession when he is afflicted."
- Unknown

"Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days. Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us, for as many years as we have seen trouble. He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty."
Psalm 90:14,15; 91:1

Lord God, our Father,
give that I can resist the problems.
