There is a scripture that is often used for a lot of card signing and big event celebrations to encourage church-goers. It is found in Proverbs 3:4-5 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all of your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”

These are two amazing scripture verses to live by! However, I think for a lot of years I read “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will then make your paths straight.” Notice which portion I tended to leave out? “… and lean not on your own understanding.”

Not until I began practicing meditating on God’s Word did I begin to notice I had always said it, but never listened or heard it when I did. How much different does the day or future look when we aren’t trying to figure everything out? When we are just focusing on one moment and day at a time, it can be freeing and live changing; and also seem scary. When we begin to realize we really do not have control of the world., but we do have control of our moods and our attitudes, blaming others doesn’t work anymore. And we really have to learn what it means to trust. The good part is, God created the sunrise and the sunset, He knew His plans for you before you ever learned to move into a Down Dog, and He knows what is coming. He can handle our future, and it really will be alright if we let go of trying to figure everything out.
