Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him; do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who carries out wicked schemes.
Today’s verse struck me as I read it this morning because that’s really what I talked about on my last post: fretting over people prospering in their own way. Often I find myself amazed at how God addresses a particular issue. This time I clearly understood that in my last blog I wrongfully judged people when I have no right to do so. In the end I feel resentful and jealous of people who can just skim by because, although I earn high grades, I earn them. People look at me and think I’m so smart – and I am, but only in one thing: I’m smart enough to know that I have to work hard to succeed in college, and I do what I have to. But that’s me, and I don’t have any right to mock or condemn the way other people conduct their lives. As Mom always told me: You can’t control other people, you can only control yourself. If only. Then maybe I wouldn’t shoot off my big mouth so often.
