Joyful Submission

Psalm 37: 1-8

1 Fret not thyself because of evildoers , neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.

2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.

3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed .

4 Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass .

6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.

7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who brings wicked devices to pass. 

8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil .

Let your cares drive you to God. I shall not mind if you have many of them if each one leads you to prayer. If every fret makes you lean more on the Beloved, it will be a benefit. —Charles Spurgeon

This time of year seems to provoke everyone, even true believers, to get all “wrapped up in the mess of commercialism” instead of getting “caught up in the joys of eternal love given to us by the One whose birth this time is truly about”.   May you bless others by giving where it means the most… “WHERE GOD LEADS YOU TO GIVE”.  ♥ Streim

About Streim

I find great peace and joy in knowing the Lord Jesus Christ as my Savior, and am honored to serve Him with all He is creating me to be. I love the Word of God and I am learning more everyday about living the life that is the will of My Father in this world of chaos. My life before I asked God to forgive me of all my sin and Jesus Christ into my heart was one of utter selfishness in all aspects of my life. I partied, I lived for ME and only me. Now, I live for Him, with great joy daily. I want to share the Gospel, encourage other sisters/brothers in Christ through prayer and do as He leads by the faith He's given through His abundant grace!

  1. YOU SAID: “This time of year seems to provoke everyone, even true believers, to get all “wrapped up in the mess of commercialism” instead of getting “caught up in the joys of eternal love given to us by the One whose birth this time is truly about”.

    I agree whole-heartedly. Guess it is time to break out my “Christ-centered Christmas” post. ;)
