"Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don't try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he's the one who will keep you on track. Don't assume that you know it all. Run to God! Run from evil! Your body will glow with health, your very bones will vibrate with life!" Proverbs 3:5-8 MSG
God has planned for each of us to enjoy self-worth, security and a sense of belonging—things we can only experience as we learn to trust him. Life brings challenges, but God does not intend for us to have to face those challenges alone.
No matter what your circumstances … No matter what you have done or what you are feeling inside … God loves you and is waiting for you to trust him—and to be willing to do things his way. You'll soon learn that his way is always the best way.
Lord, I'm beginning to realize that I have been trying to exercise control in my life with my own strength. Help me to give up that need for control to you. Help me to trust you and do things your way. My way isn't working. I believe yours will. In Jesus' name... AMEN
