Trust in the Lord........

My favorite scripture since the time I was saved (in my early twenties) has been:
Proverbs 3:5-6.
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding, 
acknowledge HIM in ALL of your ways and He will direct your path."

Not sure anyone else will remember but there was a singer at the time named DION 
who had a song with these words as the lyrics. I am sure it is what helped cement them into my brain.

Today's devotion in "Jesus Calling" is about this very scripture...
It says that "trust is a golden pathway to heaven, when you walk on this path
you live above your circumstances."
"Relying on your own understanding will weigh you down.
Trust in ME absolutely, and I will make your path straight."

So here's to trusting HIM today in everything!
When you begin to feel overwhelmed and crazy about the circumstances that surround you
Take a deep breath and recite this scripture....

I know that I am always trying to figrue things out
so today I will NOT, I will just REST in HIS divine wisdom.

How about you!?


  1. Me too! I'm just trusting always. I'm still waiting Sherry I love him. I love him too much. So no matter how hard each day is I put all my faith in the Lord and he keeps seeing us through each day. You encourage me in ways you dont even know. I watch and listen to you. Thank you. I can't wait until the day I can give you a real hug!

  2. What you are going through is so unique and quite difficult. I think you are going to find yourself far stronger than you ever knew! If, indeed, your love for one another is from HIM then sticking with it will be greatly rewarded! I wish I were closer to give you some big loving hugs and to reassure you that INDEED you CAN do this! Just TRUST HIM!!!! XO
