Living The Good
By Marcia Greenwood
that the majority of people want to live "the good life."
But the meaning of "the good life" to one person is not the same
meaning to another.
Many people try to attain "the good life" by doing things the way they
have been taught through examples of what has helped others.
But to all too many people, their "good life" comes "hit and

God, the Almighty Creator of the universe has a wonderful, mighty plan
and a path of life for you.
If you have not as of yet found out what that plan and path is, or
somehow got redirected somewhere down the line - then just go to Him
right now, don't put it off any longer, and ask Him to guide you on to
how to walk down and live in the path of life He has made just for you.
Now, God's perfect plan does not just fall in our laps, there are
things we must do.
The commandment of the New Testament is LOVE. We need to do all
things through love.
Joshua 1:8 says "This book of the law shall not depart out of thy
mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest
observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou
shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success."
This takes reading the Word of God, knowing what it says to do and then
DOING it, AND THEN you will be successful in all you do.
The book of proverbs has much to teach us about the words we
speak. In Chapter 6 verse 2 - the Bible actually says WE, yes you
and I alike are snared with the words we speak over our own
lives. You and I must stop the negative talk and speak the
promises of God over our lives and the lives of our families.
For it truly is the will of God to see us prosper in every way and live
"the good life" in Him.
