Do not fret!

Psalm 37:1-11

"Do not fret because of evil men or be envious of those who do wrong; for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away.
Trust in the Lord and do good;
dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.

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 do this:
He will make your righteousness to shine like the dawn,
the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.
Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.
Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret - it only leads to evil.
For evil men will be cut off, but those who hope in the LORD will inherit the land. A little while, and the wicked will be no more; though you look for them, they will not be found.
But the meek will inherit the land and enjoy great peace."
Psalm 100: 4-5
"Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; and his faithfulness continues through all generations".

  1. What a beautiful picture! This message is so timely, thank you. I've been listening to cd's on controlling anger and it's real eye opening! It's amazing how it's really so simple though....turn to Him....He has all the answers we need. Trust in the Lord and do good....a wonderful verse and yet it's something I have to remind myself daily. He can handle all our problems, concerns and so on....I sometimes think I can figure them out myself...how silly am I? ~smile!
    Hugs, Heather
