a bit monkish.
Worry not, my child.
The wilderness times are blessings.
Care not about your happiness.
Know in your soul that I am God.
For to know me is to love me.
To love me is to trust me.
To trust me is to walk through the wilderness times.
In them you will see my presence.
Peace of life comes only through fire.
The wilderness times are blessed times.
Rejoice for the trials of life.
Rejoice in them, my child.
