When Life Is Upside Down, Trust in God

“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.” Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV

God has promised that if we trust in Him with our whole heart, He will make our paths straight.

This reminds me of the Israelites who wandered around the desert for 40 years because they were not submitted to God’s will. If only their path had been straight! They would have arrived in the Promised Land in record time. When our path is straight, we are on the right path!

“Those who know your name trust in you,
    for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.” Psalm 9:10 NIV

“You will keep in perfect peace
    those whose minds are steadfast,
    because they trust in you.” (NIV) Isaiah 26:3 NIV

“And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” Hebrews 11:6 NIV

Lord, Help us to trust in you in every circumstance, in every trial, in all things that come our way. You are able to do “immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine.” You love us and we put our trust in you. You are the strong tower we run to. You are our strength.

With Love,


This Is My Journey Unscripted.

  1. Interesting connection to the children of Israel in the desert. (Saw a meme the other day of Mrs. Moses finally stopping to ask directions. 😉) Makes me wonder how long America will be wandering…
    P. S. I like to put Proverbs 3:5-6 in graduation cards. 🙂
    Happy Fourth!
