Trust in The Lord

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. (Proverbs 3:5) 
Trust is part of any healthy relationship. 
However, past hurts or life experiences can make it hard to trust.  

You might even find yourself questioning who is reliable, truthful, or able to support you emotionally.  
Yet, Proverbs says to trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.  

That is because our hearts and minds can lead us astray. 
When we set out on our own without God’s input, we can get lost or off track—like taking a hike without a map or compass. 

However, as we lean into God’s Word and His wisdom, we are promised that He will make our path straight. 
He will guide us and show us which way to go

Take a moment to reflect on your day. Are there any areas of your life you struggling to give the Lord? Is there anything that is weighing heavily on your heart? Allow God’s peace and wisdom to penetrate the deepest fears and biggest concerns of your life. He will guide and protect you!! 
When I read this devotion I was reminded of the very scripture God placed on my heart the past couple of days, Proverbs 2:25-26, Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. For the Lord shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken. Faith does not mean trusting God to stop the storm, but trusting Him to strengthen us as we walk through the storm. 

Have a beautiful and uplifting day in The Lord!
