Why we should not fret.

Fret Not My Child

by patcelaw

Fret not my dear child
about trials you pass through
since unknown to others
are treasures I have for you.

Beautiful are those treasures
I will make last forever
even the enemy of your soul
will touch them never.

So my child fret not
of evil done by others
for you see they are not
your sisters or your brothers.

-Patricia Lawrence


Often in life we do not understand the trials we much pass
through. Only God knows the reason for
the sufferings, and how they are working in His plan for you.

Psalm 37:1 Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.
Psalm 37:7 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.
Jeremiah 29:11-13
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

Sisters and brothers refer to those who are fellow believers.
