When life gets really tough where do we turn. I find no matter how I am struggling that prayer or delving into my Bible always helps. Did I always do that – NO! Now, I can open my Bible, and I can feel God’s presence leading me to open a page and read. I remember one time when my Dad was taken to the hospital and it was icy. I was called at 2 A.M. and could not go in the ice. I sit there sobbing and grabbed my Bible. This was the verse that I first laid my eyes on, “Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning” Proverbs 30.5(b).
Here is a verse on trust that speaks to my heart:
Bruce Waltke, in his Proverbs commentary translates the first verse of 6 as “in all your ways desire his presence”. The NIV version of the verse 6 reads, “in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” I love that, and am reminded that I need to seek His will ALWAYS, and desire His presence no matter what I am going through – all things.
Whole-hearted trust in the Lord no matter what fear may come my way and “desiring His presence” in all things – ALWAYS.
