Don’t Fret Because of the Evildoers

 
Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.

 

2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.

3 Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.

4 Delight thyself also in the Lord: and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

5 Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass.

6 And He shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.

7 Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.

8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.

9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth.

10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.

~ Psalm 37: 1 – 10
King James Version(KJV)

And do not forget any of His benefits;

Who forgives all your sins,
Who heals all your diseases;

Who crowns you [lavishly] with loving-kindness and tender mercy;

Who satisfies your years with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the [soaring] eagle.

He Recognized Destiny Calling

“I was a wife and a mother, and I was completely fulfilled.
But my husband recognized the signals in me which said,
“I’ve been doing enough gardening, I’ve cooked enough good dinners,
I’ve sat around the house and mooned about what more interior decoration
I can get my fingers into.”
It’s a curious thing with actors and actresses,
but suddenly the alarm goes off.
My husband is a very sensitive person to my moods
and he recognized the fact that I had to get on with something.
‘Mame’ came along out-of-the-blue, just at this time.
Now isn’t that a miracle?”

“Life is like an iceberg. Ninety percent is under the water, invisible to the naked eye.
The only way to understand the supernatural world is through the Bible.
I don’t know how I existed without knowing God, or living in His love 24/7,
or experiencing His peace no matter what the circumstances, or gaining His wisdom in all of life’s choices.
I can honestly say, “I now have no fear of lack, sickness, or even death.””

Oh, My Goodness! I’m Becoming a Poet, and I Didn’t Even Know It!

Well, I hope that title makes you smile as often as it has made me smile.  The title for this post was my reaction to a statement I spoke to the Lord this morning, after getting out of bed!  I stated:

“Good morning, Adonai.  Thank-you for the blessings that have already come.
Thank-you for the blessings already on their way.  Thank-you for the blessings here,  for today.”

Darkness Reveals Stars

“When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson,
Essayist, Lecturer, and Poet

Look for the ‘stars’ in a ‘dark’ circumstance; you’ll see them if you look for them.
Sometimes solutions do not become obvious (& ‘visible’) until the darkest moments.
