But Don't Worry about Dark Times

Scripture

Commit your life to the Lord, trust in God and he will act,
so that your justice will break forth like the light, your cause like the noon-day sun.

Be still before the Lord and wait in patience; 
do not fret at the man who prospers; 
a man who makes evil plots to bring down the needy and the poor.

Calm your anger and forget your rage; do not fret, it only leads to evil.
For those who do evil shall perish; the patient shall inherit the land.

A little longer – and the wicked shall have gone. 
Look at his place, he is not there. 
But the humble shall own the land
and enjoy the fullness of peace.

Psalm 37

[Regardless of "Dark Times" God never changes. Of that, we can be assured. To paraphrase Jesus, what business is it of yours what happens with the world? "But you, you follow me."]
