Trust in the Lord


Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.



Proverbs 3:5-6 is one of my favorite bible verses. It's my go to verse when I need reassurance. Lately that's been happening quite a bit. Seems like so much has been going on lately. Not only with me, but with everyone. 
    There is so much sickness and tragic events taking place. There are many people who have lost their jobs and those who are living in constant fear of losing theirs. 
      Life is a constant whirlwind and there are so many things that I'm so uncertain about. But the one thing I am certain about is God and his love for us. His love never fails. He said he would never leave us nor forsake is. No matter what we go through in life, he is and always will be there for us. 
    So while we may not understand why all of these bad things are happening, we must trust in the Lord. If we leaned on our own understanding we would be in a world of hurt. God knows what is best for us. He sees the big picture! We need to give him praise when things are going good and also praise during the storms in life. We may not understand this path that God is taking us down but God knows it's the best path for us. There is a reason for everything. He will make our crooked paths straight.
