Just thinking out loud...

"Do not fret because of evildoers, Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, And wither as the green herb. Trust in the LORD, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass. He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, And your justice as the noonday. Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for Him; " Psalm 37:1-7

"Delight yourself also in the Lord" Take pleasure in serving Him! Not because you have to, not because you're told to, not because you want something from Him, but because you truly enjoy serving Him.
Do not wish you were on the other side of the fence. Do not envy the happenings of those who are worldly. Take PLEASURE in serving your King... through mountains and valleys... through rewards and tests. Do good... WANT good. "Commit your way to the Lord" Surrender your will....Commit to HIS way. When you are committed to Him, Your heart is Aligned with the heart of Christ. His desires become your desires.

Trust fully in Him. Recognize that He IS your ONLY source. His faithfulness FEEDS you! So rely fully on Him. Focus your eyes on our Lord. Do not become anxious! Instead...Rest in confidence KNOWING He WILL bring it to pass. Wait patiently, even if it seems long, wait patiently with Faith....
"And He shall give you the desires of your heart."
