Don't fret...

It is always weakness to be fretting and worrying, questioning and mistrusting. Can we gain anything by it? Do we not unfit ourselves for action, and unhinge our minds for wise decision? We are sinking by our struggles when we might float by faith.

Oh, for grace to be quiet! Oh, to be still and know that Jehovah is God! The Holy One of Israel must defend and deliver His own. We may be sure that every word of His will stand, though the mountains should depart. He deserves to be confided in. Come, my soul, return unto thy rest, and lean thy head upon the bosom of the Lord Jesus.
~Streams in the Desert

It can sure be difficult not to fret, can't it? It's true, we don't gain anything by it. Just more worry. Resting in the bosom of Jesus is the best place to be. When we are still and rest in Him, all our worries fade away. He takes them and replaces them with His peace...
