2022: Be Present, Be Faithful, Be Generous: March Edition

“I the Lord search the heart and examine the mind, to reward each person according to their conduct, according to what their deeds deserve.” Jeremiah 17:10 NIV

This month had it’s up and downs. In some themes better than others. This month I learned more about being present and faithful more than anything else. During the month of March my husband and I stepped in to help take care of a sick family member. I took on this role with a servant’s heart and it has shown. Everyday when my husband and I are helping I wake up and I start helping with a smile. In return I have learned some wise pieces of advice. Including how to rely on God even when things look hard.

In addition to this I recently celebrated my birthday, and I was so spoiled. Thank you to everyone who helped make my day special. I am making memories that I can look back on and smile about. 😊

When it comes to being faithful this month, I had a lot on my heart. Later Matt and I  talked about it, and he said it is better to share then to keep it inside. To be honest keeping things on the inside doesn’t help at all. Now that I have shared what I was feeling with my husband I feel a lot better, and God has revealed part of his life plan for me. Sometimes we don’t understand God’s plan, however we must remember in Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the plans I have for you.” declares the Lord, “Plans to give you hope and a future.” For me that future was for me to get married. Matt is really close to the lord and he continues to point me to Christ on a daily basis.

In addition to these thoughts, I kept focusing on the words that others had said in the past. They still hurt my heart. Matt reminded me that those words are in the past and that God would rather have me take the advice that Paul gave, “…But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has Called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”( Philippians 3:13 NIV)

 Matt reminded me that my thoughts should be praiseworthy, “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things. (Philippians 4:8 NIV)

When it comes to being generous, we continue to share the gospel and provide encouragement to our brothers and sisters in Christ. I love to get messages and cards from those who have received Matt’s book. His testimony really does show that if you give your problems over to God you can handle anything.
