Dear Diary,

The Formula for Happiness is found in Psalm 37: Fret not, Trust in the LORD, Delight thyself in the LORD, Commit thy way unto the LORD, Rest in the LORD, Cease from anger, Wait on the LORD.

Fret not: Fret not thyself because of evil-doers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.” (Psalm 37:1).

Trust in the LORD: “Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.” (Psalm 37:3).

Delight thyself in the LORD: “Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.” (Psalm 37:4).

Commit thy way unto the LORD: “Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.”(Psalm 37:5).

Rest in the LORD: “Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him:…” (Psalm 37:7).

Cease from anger: “Cease from anger, and forsake wrath:…” (Psalm 37:8).

Wait on the LORD: “Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land:…” (Psalm 37:34).

Thought for Today: “The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.” (Psalm 37:23).
