"Fret not thyself, it tendeth only to evil doing." Psalm 37:8Fretting means getting out at elbows mentally or spiritually. It is one thing to say "Fret not," but a very different thing to have such a disposition that you find yourself able not to fret. It sounds so easy to talk about 'resting in the Lord' and 'waiting patiently for Him' until the nest is upset - until we live, as so many are doing, in tumult and anguish, is it possible then to rest in the Lord? If this "don't" does not work there, it will work nowhere. This "don't" must work in days of perplexity as well as in days of peace, or it will never work. And if it will not work in your particular case, it will not work in anyone else's case. Resting in the Lord does not depend on external circumstances at all, but on your relationship to God Himself.(Taken from Oswald Chambers "My Utmost for His Highest)
I really needed to hear that..... Thanks :-)

I know what you mean about mail etc. I used to do so much writing and never do it anymore.After reading your message regarding knowledge and people rushing, I was reminded of the Scripture in Daniel:-Daniel 12:4 "But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased."
