I like this Psalm. It is so upbeat and full of positivity (a good word).
We hear so much negative news it is hard to see the positive. Look for it. It is out there. While we may still have to deal with the bad, a bit of good can give us strength.
We know in our hearts God is watching over us. He gives us wisdom and His love lights our way so we do not stumble.
Therefore go forth and do good joyfully!
