Prayers and Promises: Proverbs 3:5-6

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)

I love this verse.  As I said last week, I am a “take matters into your own hands” kind of person.  I race ahead of God like an excited child at the amusement park….sometimes I go the wrong way or get lost, but when I rely on you, Lord, things just work out!  It is very hard sometimes to put your trust in someone else, but you have proven year after year to be faithful to me and so very reliable.  You are always there.  In times when I just didn’t know how I could make something work, I put it in your hands, and it worked!  Help me, Lord, to continue to learn how to let you lead my life.   “Jesus, take the wheel!”
