  1. Donna Theresa,

    Psalm 37:1, He instructs us not to fret about “evildoers” or envy them. God will deal with them. Our responsibility is to watch our own actions.

    “Trust in the Lord” Psalm 37 verse 3. He instructs us to trust in him.

    Psalm 37:7, Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him. God’s timing is perfect. If you see no immediate respone to a faithful prayer, we must trust Him for His flawless timing.

    You and your family are in my prayers daily.
    Love Aunt Mitzi
