Psalm 37

**This really spoke to me yesterday**
    A psalm of David.
 1 Don’t worry about the wicked
      or envy those who do wrong.
 2 For like grass, they soon fade away.
      Like spring flowers, they soon wither.
 3 Trust in the LORD and do good.
      Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.
 4 Take delight in the LORD,
      and he will give you your heart’s desires.
 5 Commit everything you do to the LORD.
      Trust him, and he will help you.
 6 He will make your innocence radiate like the dawn,
      and the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sun.
 7 Be still in the presence of the LORD,
      and wait patiently for him to act.
   Don’t worry about evil people who prosper
      or fret about their wicked schemes.
 8 Stop being angry!
      Turn from your rage!
   Do not lose your temper—
      it only leads to harm.
 9 For the wicked will be destroyed,
      but those who trust in the LORD will possess the land.
