Do Not Fret
I have an ailment that is quite common. I fret about things that I cannot change. Like most, I recognize this, but I still do it. I especially do it in matters where I feel called to make a difference and yet feel that I am not able to. Maybe I believe that fretting is better than just doing nothing; so when I feel I can do nothing else my fretting somehow justifies my lack of doing something about the issue. Maybe that is the real problem- like many of us, I want to be justified. I was reading Psalm 37 this morning. In fact I read it a few times, and in all of its powerful verses there is no attempt by David to try and justify himself. It is a rare quality and because of it he is able to throw himself and his problems completely onto God.
