Sorry I haven't posted for the last two weeks. I've been really busy and and distracted lately.
Right now, I've been making some big decisions about my future. They've been tough decisions to make and have solicited a lot of tears and worry. Throughout this whole process, I've felt like God has just been saying, "Trust ME". And I've tried to trust Him and yet somehow it wasn't working. It wasn't working because I was trying to trust with my own strength and I just needed to be reminded that without Him, I am nothing.
After one of my tearful discussions with Mommy and Daddy, Daddy suggested that I read my Bible. Well, the Lord knew exactly what I needed to hear that night and the first chapter I decided to read was Proverbs 16. These verses really popped out at me.
Commit your works to the Lord and your plans will be established (v. 3)
The mind of a man plans his way but the Lord directs his steps (v. 9)
The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord (v. 33)
I still don't know what my future holds and I can't say that I won't worry about it. But I do know that whatever happens, God is in control and it's all part of His plan. It's only my job to trust Him and to use where He takes me for His glory.
Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all of your ways, acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.
