Proverbs 3: 5&6 (The New Living Translation)
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek His will in all you do and
He will show you which path to take.
There is something very comforting in those words of scripture for me.
As I look upon the picture, I see my husband and our youngest child, (who is really God's child, that is where my trust is so very important) who has taken her father's hand walking down a path of the unknown. She is blessed to have a father whom she can trust and has the assurance of his unconditional love. This path has a sense of adventure for them, not knowing what they will find ahead. There may be a rough path ahead with obstacles in the way, or a thing of glorious beauty waiting for them. However my daughter has full confidence in her father, even wearing his jacket for comfort.
Don't you long to walk down the path of life with that kind of assurance?
I have many times where it is easy to trust God, other times I let go of God's hand, only to quickly realize that I am better off in His hands than in my own.
Many of you may not have had the privilege of a father who knew and loved God, but I want you to know that there is a heavenly father,
I urge you today to take the hand of the one who created you and loves you, to walk your path of life.
