Fret Not Yourselves




In the troubled world in which we live, I am taking hope in the words of Psalm 37 -

Fret not yourself
because of evildoers;
be not envious of wrongdoers!
 For they will soon fade like the grass 
and wither like the green herb
Trust in the Lord, and do good;
dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.
Delight yourself in the LORD,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the LORD;
trust in him, and he will act.
He will bring forth your righteousness as the light,
and your justice as the noon-day.
       Be still before the LORD    
and wait patiently for him;
fret not yourself over the one
who prospers in his way,
over the man who carries out
      evil devices!     
Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath!
Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil.
For the evildoers shall be cut off,
but those who wait for the LORD
shall inherit the land.

  1. Very timely in light of yesterday's events. I have more to say about it, but will zip my lip (for a change). Hope that you're enjoying a lovely spring day and not one where winter is rearing its head.
