Trust the Lord Completely; don’t ever trust yourself. In everything you do, put God first, and He will direct you and crown your efforts with success.
Proverbs 3: 5-6
I didn’t grow up in a really religious home. I knew that their was a God, but that was about it. I could count on one hand how many times I went to church with my family. As I started getting older I would go here and there but I never felt like I was getting anything out of it, but I was a teenager so I was thinking everything had to be about me.
I ended up moving and came met a friend Marsha, and she really opened me up and helped me see the amazing relationship I could have with God and Jesus! I started going to church a lot, doing bible studies, and finding myself focusing on God constantly. In that time I felt myself becoming happier with life, and even when I hit a hard spot in life I knew I would make it through by the grace of God.
Since then I have had ups and downs of my faith. When things get hard I would start to worry about things, and analyze why it is happening. So when I see this scripture it reminds me that I can’t trust in myself to figure something out, I give it to God and he will take care of me. Whether he leads me out of the issue, or guides me through it, I will come out on top at the end.
So if you are struggling or have troubles in your life, try giving it to God and allowing him to work through the problem. If you find yourself thinking about the issue then give it right back to God. No matter what he will be there to comfort and guide you, if you allow him too!!
We are all human and it is in our nature to be problem solvers, and try and fix things on our own. I still have those moments, but I just have to constantly remind myself that God is in control, and he will get me through it one way or another.
