from on high

That time I opened my Bible and my eyes fell upon this:

Thus says the LORD:
“Cursed is the man who trusts in man
and makes flesh his strength,
whose heart turns away from the LORD.

He is like a shrub in the desert,
and shall not see any good come.
He shall dwell in the parched places of the wilderness
in an uninhabited salt land.

Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD,
whose trust is in the LORD.
He is like a tree planted by water,
that sends out its roots by the stream
and does not fear when heat comes,
for its leaves remain green,
and is not anxious in the year of drought,
for it does not cease to bear fruit.”
~Jeremiah 17:5-8

A Psalm.  A Proverb.  Or a Prophet.

In other words, exactly what I needed.
