Psalm 37: 1-7

"Don’t worry about the wicked or envy those who do wrong. For like grass, they soon fade away. Like spring flowers, they soon wither. Trust in the Lord and do good. Then you will live safely in the land and prosper. Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires. Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you. He will make your innocence radiate like the dawn, and the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sun. Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for him to act. Don’t worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes."


  1. This was so great to read today.

    I really enjoy that it says 'fret not' or don't fret' like three times in the first few verses. It's very reassuring.

    I really like this psalm. Thanks for posting it, MaryBeth :)
