Proverbs 3:5-6

This is one of the first scriptures I memorized as a new Christian, it helped that it was written on the wall of one the first churches we attended. Every Sunday I would read those verses and apply them to whatever confusing hard thing I might have been struggling with.

Age doesn't change everything, I still need the reminder that I will not always understand.

I must trust the Lord even when I don't understand, acknowledging that he is always good and always faithful. That he is in control of every situation and can use what I would understand as bad for his glory. I've seen it happen, it helps me believe for the future.  That doesn't mean I don't have to go back to these verses and remind myself what is true, I still want to have it all figured out. He wants me to learn to trust, for me it will be a life long lesson.

Good morning Maryann ~ Great uplifting post. When we 'focus' more on Jesus, the better off we are. When we read scripture again and again, the truths settle more into our hearts and minds.

Thank you.

Oh my, trusting our Lord is something that our human nature struggles with regularly. Thank you for another reminder that we *can* trust Him, even when circumstances seem hopeless.

What a precious picture! Oh, and I so struggle with trusting HIM in every situation but HE has proven over an over again that HE is able. Have a great week!
