Do you have a verse from your childhood that popped up in your adult life with a whole new meaning? Today I'm sharing one of those. As a kid, I memorized this verse and I've known it my whole life. I'm pretty sure it's one of the most commonly memorized verses. As an adult, it came back into my Scripture memory rotation and it just stopped me in my tracks. I'm excited to now share it with my boys and watch as it shapes their lives as well.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways, submit to Him and He will make your paths straight. ~ Proverbs 3:5-6
We were on ski trip with my brothers, their wives, and our parents over Christmas. I was riding up the lift with my dad and he asked me what brought about some of the recent changes in my life. My response made both of us laugh. I finally started to listen to God's plans instead of my own. I figured out that when I walked in obedience... things just worked out better. God really is good like that! He DOES know what is best for us, and sometimes our hard heads are really stubborn!
Trust Him. Stop being so determined to follow our own way. He is GOOD and He will work for the good of His children! Now that's a truth I want my kids to know!
