Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.
You see a verse your whole life and it doesn’t sink in. Then one day you see it looking back down that path he’s led you in and you realize where He’s led you to be.
Imagine standing in the dark. You can’t see clearly. There is thrashing and chaotic noise all around you. Shadows dance in front of your face. You feel like everything is after you from all directions. Anything may pounce on you to do you harm at any moment. What do you do? What an you do?
With our God with us, there’s only way to walk a path in this world of darkness and chaos. It’s taking each small step with His guidance. He will lead you to a safe and straight path. All we have to do is take that first step with Faith in our hearts. With fear in your heart you’ll find yourself just standing there, frozen and ultimately only wanting to run away. But, not even knowing which way to run!
Burning this verse into this cross was a blessing for me tonight. It not only engrained the words into the cross. It engrained them again, within me. I never want fear to control mine or anyone’s lives! Lord, show us the way to keep going. We have Faith in you!
