Faith

Psalm 37:3-5

“Trust in the Lord and do good things. Live in the land and practice being faithful. Be happy with the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart. Entrust your ways to the Lord. Trust him, and He will act on your behalf”

This verse actually says a lot.  It’s one of the verses that comes to mind when I think about what it means to live the Christian life. Love the Lord, trust Him, do good things. Be happy. It’s not complicated at all. It’s also a great verse when I think about my own anxiety problems. Trust is said three times in this short verse! (Yeah, okay fine – technically one of them is “entrust”). The past few days I have not been happy. I have not been trusting in the Lord. I have not been practicing being faithful. It is hard sometimes. It’s hard when you feel depressed. It’s hard when you are so focused on your own problems; you forget that it’s not all about you.

I didn’t even write a post yesterday! It’s not that I was too busy or something. No, I was home for most of the day actually. For the first time since I started this blog I actually had nothing to say. Nothing. At. All. That scares me a little. Hopefully that won’t happen again.
