Proverbs 3:5-6:

These verses are probable our second favor. Sometimes when friends are looking for encouragement, this is the first verse I usually refer then to. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart
 and lean not on your own understanding;
6in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight”.These two verses cover four good pints:

  • Trust in the Lord
  • Not what we do
  • Obey Him
  • Follow His path

Complete trust in Him is hard at times when we are not following Him 100% and trying our own way or path. Looking back at our blessings, we see He has and will continue to work in our lives. When we trust in Him and not our abilities, He may close windows but always opens large doors for us. Our first move away from family was scary and exciting at the same time. When we actually moved, we had some sleet which took the loaders longer, left the now empty house later, our younger daughter was allergic to the two dogs at our friends to say goodbye, went to “Urgent Care” and found a motel 20 minutes down the road. We were hoping to get a motel 4-5 hours down the road. Looking back, our move was hard but God knew what He was doing and we enjoyed living in Rochester for 4 ½ years. We were following His way with trust.

Are you praying for more trust in Him?

Have you looked for past hard times that turned into blessings later on?
