Default Encouragement Poetry needed badly

for a 20 year old friend who was in an accident and is paralized from the waist down, does anyone have a poem that would be encouraging other than footprints?
I would like to give him one or two to help him get through his day.
Thanks in advance!

Default I will keep him in my prayers

I am so sorry for you friend. I will keep him in my prayers.

So don't worry, because I am with you.
Don't be afraid, because I am your God.
I will make you strong and will help you;
I will support you with my right hand that saves you.
Isaiah 41:10

The shepherd was always ahead of his sheep. he was down in front. Any attack upon them had to take him into account. Now God is down in front. He is in the tomorrows. I it tomorrow that fills men with dread. God is there alreadyl. All the tomorrows of our life have to pass Him before they can get to us. F.B.M.

God is in every tomorrow,
Therefore I live for today,
Certain of finding at sunrise,
Guidance and strength for the way;
Power for each moment of weakness,
Hope for each moment of pain,
Comfort for every sorrow,
Sunshine and joy after rain.

Do not look forward to what may happen tomorrow. The same everlasting Father who cares for you today will take care of you tomorrow, and every day. Either He will shield you from suffering, or He will give you unfailing strength to bear it. Be at peace, then, put aside all anxious thoughts. Frances de Sales

My heart so goes out to your young friend! I can't imagine what he must be going through right now. While it's easy enough for those of us dealing with so much less adversity to point to "success stories" of those who've overcome incredible odds, my heart trembles at the thought of facing it head on. The following has been a source of comfort for me many times (and I'm SO not religious in the traditional sense!). I learned of it reading about Corrie TenBoom who survived the concentration camps. HTH

My life is but a weaving
between my God and me.
I do not choose the colors,
He worketh steadily.

Oftimes He weaveth sorrow
and I in foolish pride
forget He sees the upper
and I the underside.

Not till the loom is silent
and shuttles cease to fly
Will God unroll the canvas
and explain the reason why

The dark threads are as needful
in the skillful weaver's hand
as the threads of Gold and Silver
in the pattern He has planned.

here's one of my favorite bible verses - this one has comforted me through some very hard times ~
. . . for I know the plans I have for you
says the Lord
plans to prosper you and
not to harm you
plans to give you hope
and a future . . .
I have a terrible memory for these things so I'm sorry I can't tell you where in the bible to find it, but I'm sure someone in SCS land knows.
God bless your friend, and you for being there for her during this difficult time.
