There are so many days where I get confused. This last week the plans that I had changed, and seemed to come apart at the seams. There was a sense of peace the entire time, but no solution cropped up. What to do? I believe that everything turns out the way it’s supposed to, but when waiting on an answer…there is a doubt that builds up and trust is hard. It is especially hard when there is a long period of time waiting for an answer. We follow Christ and His commands with all of our heart. Doesn’t He want to reciprocate and make our lives a little easier?
This morning, feeling disjointed and depressed, I thought I would try and find something in the Bible that can give me the answers that I need. What should I read? The thumbnail process is not really reliable, and quite often confusing. Deep in my spirit I sensed that I should go to the Proverbs…and read the one for today. Immediately a verse that I had highlighted popped up!!! Verse 5 reads, “Trust in The Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” Wow! A direct answer. All I need to do is trust Him. The answer is coming. He is my Lord, and He is in control.
We know that hindsight is 20/20, and when living in “faith” it is something that I can see time and time again. As I have struggled to trust that my life is going in the right direction…I can look back and see all the subtle ways that He has been there directing my path. All I need to do is surrender and trust. Living a day at a time is so difficult when seeing it from the eyes of the world. But when you live a day at a time in faith, it is so peaceful, and at the same time so exciting. He has planned our days to be full of song and praise…we just need to believe!
