Another favorite verse is Proverbs 3:5-6:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart &
lean not on your own understanding.
Think of him in all your ways,
and he will make your paths straight.
These are the first verses of Scripture that I ever memorized. I did so at the recommendation of my sister.
And they stuck.
I don’t always live them out, I often trust myself and my wits more than the living God, but the fact remains that I can’t escape the impact of these sacred words.
I remember heading up the Union County March For Jesus in 1995. The event was my idea, I had pulled together pastors and volunteers and trucks and sound systems and marchers . . . and on the day of the march I was beyond nervous.
But Proverbs 3:5-6 saved me. It was my mantra that day.
And the march was a great success. With no hitches and no preacher fights!
So these days, when the problems seem impossible to solve and the future appears hopeless to navigate, I return to those words that remind who is in charge and who is worth of my thoughts.
