Do NOT lean...

... on your own understanding.





This is a such a relief to me - that I do not have to lean on - or depend on- or just settle into my own thinking and understanding about anything, ANYTHING.

Proverbs 3:5-6 says this...
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.

This is MAJOR.
AND SUCH A RELIEF.

I mean, what do I know?
I can't see 30 seconds in front of this minute, much less 30 feet in front of my face.

Can you?

So what am I to do?

Worry all the time?
I have been there, done that.
(And sometimes I still revert to that.)


But OH - it is such a relief to let go.

This Covid 19 is not what I want.
I think it is horrible - and I want a vaccine!!

And I want folks to be nice to each other, no matter their (our) color.

GOOD GRIEF.

And you know, I think it IS good grief.
This grief is for something.
I think it is a time for us to NOT LEAN ON OUR UNDERSTANDING,

BUT TO TRUST GOD.

Oh yeah, shouldn't we just snap our fingers of faith and be done with this mess?
NO.
We are not in control.
Thank goodness.

I so believe that God is in control... and we should just shut up and let Him be.


WHAT A RELIEF. 

I DON'T HAVE TO FIGURE EVERYTHING OUT.






THANK YOU, GOD.
AMEN.
