Lord test me and help me keep my mind on You
"And they sacrifice sacrifices of thanksgiving, And recount His works with singing. Those going down [to] the sea in ships, Doing business in many waters, They have seen the works of Jehovah, And His wonders in the deep. And He saith, and appointeth a tempest, And it lifteth up its billows, They go up [to] the heavens, they go down [to] the depths, Their soul in evil is melted. They reel to and fro, and move as a drunkard, And all their wisdom is swallowed up. And they cry to Jehovah in their adversity, And from their distresses He bringeth them out. He establisheth a whirlwind to a calm, And hushed are their billows. And they rejoice because they are quiet, And He leadeth them to the haven of their desire. They confess to Jehovah His kindness, And His wonders to the sons of men," (Psalms 107:22-31). Young's Literal Translation.
"It is good for me that I have been afflicted; That I may learn thy statutes." (Psalms 119:71). ASV 1901
"For those who live according to the flesh have their outlook shaped by the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit have their outlook shaped by the things of the Spirit." (Romans 8:5). NET
