Happy IV

#8 - Happy is she that has mercy on the poor.  Proverbs 14:21
She gives real action to her faith.  Her attitude is merciful and humble. 

#9 - Happy is she that trusts in the Lord.  Proverbs 16:20
She doesn't just abide by His rules, she puts her trust in Him completely.  I must not hold back from Him.  I must not simply pray for His help.  I must lay myself down on the altar and surrender to His will.  It isn't cliche.  It is real.  It is a heart that must be continually given over.  Just when I think I'm totally surrendered, the Lord leads me further in and asks me for more.  Maybe I feel tentative.  Maybe I think a little on it.  I must surrender.  I lay my self down again, in yet another way on His altar.  And, He can be pleased in my life ultimately.
