"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 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 leads only to evil: (Psalm 37:2-8 NIV).
"Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God--children not born of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God. The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth" (John 1:12-14 NIV).
There's that word I struggle with: fret. I've written extensively how I fret and fret and fret! I even have a poem and devotion in my book about fretting. Yet I still fret. When I'm tired. When I'm not feeling well. When the world just seem so off-kilter and out of sinc. When I begin to lose hope. I fret.
I am a child of God and that is all I need! I thank the Father every day for adopting me into His family!
Blessings on your journey,
