~Friday for Friends~

 "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.[a]" Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV)

This can be very hard. So often we want to place all our confidence in ourselves and "tough it out." We want to solve our own problems, to be self-sufficient. However, what we need to remember is this:

God has a wonderful plan for us (Jeremiah 29:11). We can come to Him with whatever stress we have (1 Peter 5:7). If we confess our sins, He will forgive us (1 John 1:9).

Amen! Amen! Amen!


  1. Beautiful, beautiful, and so so true. I know for me giving up the illusion of control and trusting God with a situation can be one of the hardest steps to take, no matter how many different times/ways I do it. But I know that it's always, always the best decision I can make. After all, who better to take care of you than the one who made you from the start and loves you more than you could ever love yourself? :)


    1. Yeah, sometimes it's hard to admit that the only one who can fix our mess is God. And, yes, His love is so amazing!
