The Desires of your Heart

Psalm 37 v 1-9

Do not fret because of evil men or be envious of those who do wrong; 
for like the grass they will soon wither,
like the green plants they will soon die away.

Trust in the Lord and do good;
dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.

Delight yourself in the Lord and do good;
and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in him and he will do this:

He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn,
the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him;
do not fret when men succeed in their ways,
when they carry out their wicked schemes.

Refrain from anger and turn away from wrath;
do not fret - it leads only to evil.

For evil men will be cut off, but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.
