Morning Motivation from Proverbs 3:5-6

“Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.  In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your path.”
Proverbs 3:5-6 AMP
 
 
“Trust in the Lord, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind…”
I don’t know how many times a day I say “help me, Lord” but it is many, and that one little sentence has become my new mantra.   When I call out to God in this way, it means I have no idea where He is taking me, but I want to remain in God’s will and need His guidance.
“…and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.”

At times, even before I realize it, I have ventured out based on my limited understanding.  These times I have allowed myself to be directed by my flawed concept of understanding are the times that usually do not result in the best outcome.  This is when I know I need to return to the wisdom of God.

“In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, 
and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths.”

I pray that God will direct my path and I also pray that if I swerve off that path that He will pull me back to where I belong.

May God bless you on your path.  Lean on and trust in Him and His understanding.  I pray that He directs you and shows you the best path for your life and that you open your eyes to His insight.  Please pray the same for me.

Have a great week!

Hi, I am a mom, nana, and writer living in the beautiful state of NC. I was married for 37 years and then blindsided by my husband, a former pastor. After decades he filed for legal separation without a word to me. It has been a rough road coming to terms with this new life that has been chosen for me. My blog is a place where I share "The Beginning," this place I found myself, a place I did not want to be. "The Journey," the things we need to do as we traverse this new road. Lastly "The Joy," and yes there is still joy to be found even after great pain. I have finished my first book "My Story My Divorce God's Promise, The Beginning." I am in the process of writing The Journey and The Joy. Please join me on my adventure to a new life. Always remember God's Promise "I will never leave you or forsake you."
