Psalm 37:1-4 New Living Translation (NLT)
A psalm of David.
1 Don’t worry about the wicked
or envy those who do wrong.
2 For like grass, they soon fade away.
Like spring flowers, they soon wither.
3 Trust in the Lord and do good.
Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.
4 Take delight in the Lord,
and he will give you your heart’s desires.
God's presence is right here
Sometimes we need to rest in knowing the truth according to the Bible. God started designing and wants to give you your heart's desire. It takes time to make somethings happen in life. Behind the scenes of our lives, God is at work!
Philippians 2:12-13 New Living Translation (NLT)
Shine Brightly for Christ
Dear friends, you always followed my instructions when I was with you. And now that I am away, it is even more important. Work hard to show the results of your salvation, obeying God with deep reverence and fear. 13 For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.
Following instructions can sometimes be hard. I was in my granddaughter's first grade class yesterday. I like the way the teacher (Ms Ortiz) put no words to her project. The kids watched her, followed what she did as she held up the paper. Most of the kids got it exactly right, while some cut their paper wrong. It was because they didn't watch completely and then were upset when the paper was cut wrong. I went around to help the kids that cut wrong. The project came out okay for those who cut wrong.
I started thinking about the project after I got home. I can compare it to our lives. Sometimes we know to do the right thing but mess up. It should never stop us from completing the taste before us. God gives us and wants us to live in peace of mind. We have new beginnings for a reason and I know that. It is the brain that makes us go back to negative and regrets. To live in perfect peace, we must keep our minds stayed on God. It's sounds hard, but it's a decision to seek him daily. You can do it, I just know it!
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
