Trust God And Do Good

A pretty simple motto to live by.  I have been reading Psalm 37 every day lately and meditating upon it.  It has so many wonderful promises and directions for life.

Trust in the Lord, and do good;
so shalt thou dwell in the land,
and verily thou shalt be fed. 
Delight thyself also in the Lord;
and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart.  {verses 4,5}

The more I have learned to trust in the Lord and wait patiently upon Him, the more peace I have in my life.  It takes away the need to control and manipulate others and situations.  His ways are best.

We should be known for doing good.   All of our actions towards others should be considered good.  Whether you are changing your baby's diaper or helping your neighbor out, consider them as offerings to the Lord.   If you do this, you shall dwell in the land and be fed.  We don't need to worry about a thing.

Many of you single women want to be married.  Many of you married women want to have children.  Believe God.  He tells us to delight ourselves in Him and He will give us the desires of our heart.  Wanting to be married and have children are desires from God Almighty.  Never be ashamed of those desires.  Thank the Lord for the godly spouse He is preparing for you and for the children He will bless you with and then wait patiently upon Him and His timing.

While you are waiting, make it your ambition in life to do good.  Whatever your hand finds to do, do it mightily as unto the Lord.  If you are in college, do your very best and love all those God puts into your path.  Be involved in a local church and find a ministry that you enjoy there.  Be full of doing good things for this is what the Lord requires of you.

So continue trusting in the Lord and doing good.  This is the way to an abundant life!
