As some of you know, I pretty much feel a steady pull or drive to do something about all the hurting, suffering, lost situations around me. I just want to move to remote parts of the earth and teach un-reached people about our Savior. I want to open a home for abandoned or malnourished babies, or maybe a transition home for girls who are leaving the orphanage. i want to walk the streets and take hot meals and the Lord's love to all the people begging on the streets. I want to open up a training facility for moms where they can learn skills and the Word of God and get encouragement and fellowship
But, I can't right now. I can't do those things. So my question for the Lord is always, "Why are you giving me these ideas and desires and this longing when I can't do anything! Where are you leading me? What DO you want me to DO?"
In searching the Scriptures yesterday, I believe he has shown me what I need to do.
Let's look at Psalm 37:3-7
"Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of you heart.
Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him and He will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him"
There it is,clear as day. What I'm supposed to do. I am to
1. Trust in the Lord and do good.
2. Delight in the Lord
3. Commit my way to Him
4. Be still and wait patiently for Him
Wow. So that is what I'm gonna do. That should keep me busy for a while. ;)
