I've been reading through the book of Psalms from the book, Psalms/Now by Leslie F. Brandt. Today's psalm, Psalm 37, seemed a good reminder after the national chaos of the past week.
It's high time we stop complaining
about the dissipation of our world
or the corruption of our society.
At the same time we eye with envy
those ungodly characters
who appear to have more fun
or to be more successful than we are.
If we really trusted in God
and were truly committed to His purposes,
the world might be a great deal better off today.
GOD IS IN OUR WORLD!!
of our joy and well-being.
He is the fulfillment of our hearts' desires.
If we dedicate our lives to Him and His will,
He will be able to work through us,
to permeate this world's darkness with divine light.
Let's keep our cool and try to be patient.
about the apparent hopelessness of it all.
We only contribute to this despair
by always being negative and defeatist.
GOD HAS NOT TAKEN A VACATION; HE IS HERE!!
He has His own way of dealing
with the instigators of corruption.
It will take TIME,
but the victory is ultimately God's!
shall surely discover
that His purposes prevail,
that true joy and peace and security
come from Him.
Let us wait on God and seek daily to obey Him.
He is our salvation and our security,
and NOTHING in this world
can take that away from us.
Let us calm our hostilities,
overcome our anxieties,
and walk in peace and love.
Blessings and Peace,
