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.(Prov 3:5-6)
First, what and who do we put our trust in if we are not trusting anything at all?When we are planning a road trip towards a destination, we are determined to arrive at an appointed time. We put our trust in the performance of the car to get us from point A to B but most of all we stay in our lanes to avoid any accidents or head on collisions. We do this because we are “driven” to finish what we have started and have put complete trust in our heart and mind to get to our destination. The same “trust” that we invest in keeps our mind focused on a certain thing. What are we allowing our hearts and mind to trust, rely and focus on? What is the reward, if any? Will it keep us from driving in the wrong direction? Are we riding in both lanes? Have we asked or allowed God to take the wheel completely?
