when we need direction in our lives, where do we go? direction can mean many things, from where to live, who to marry, where to work to where am I going to eat lunch or what shoes to wear. in any case, we can sometimes be our own worst enemy, making things more complicated than they need to be. we think and rethink (well at least I do) and we seek guidance from others. these are good things but should not be our first plan of action. as I was so intently trying to come up with a solution in an area of my life, God’s still sweet voice whispered to me “stop trying to figure out what I am doing and trust I am in control!” and there’s my direction…Him, true North!
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 NIV)
