30 Days Of…Day 7 – “Favorite Scripture”

I have many favorite scriptures, but one of them is Proverbs chapter 3 verses 5-7 which reads as follows from the Amplified Bible Version:

“Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; reverently fear and worship the Lord and turn [entirely] away from evil.”

This is one of my favorite scriptures because it is my natural instinct to follow the desires of my heart and not listen to voice of God. Following my way is not always the best course to follow when making  decisions. Do I always follow this scripture? No. Do I do things my way? Yes. But, I’m still a work in process and my rough edges are still being smoothed out and my frowns are slowly being turned into smiles and each day is a new day to keep trying and keep moving along the road of life.
