“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.”

Proverbs 3:5-6

How many times have you cried out to God, in heartbreak and despair, that you just don’t understand His ways. I’ve done it plenty of times. When my life wasn’t turning out the way I thought it would. When I miscarried the first time, then the second time, and especially the third time. When my heart hurt so badly I wasn’t sure it would ever heal.

I’m sure you have memories flooding your mind right now of times when you cried out “I just don’t understand God.” None of us are exempt from the twists and turns of life, and we will all face our fair share of highs and lows.

Proverbs 3:5-6 reminds us to not depend on our understanding – and I’m so thankful for that. I do not know the end from the beginning, but my God does. I have no idea what tomorrow will hold, but he has already walked my tomorrow before me.

If we seek his will in all we do, he will show us which path to take. It might not make perfect sense to us, but we will feel peace in knowing which direction we are to go in. He is not the author of confusion, rather he is the Prince of Peace. Our Everlasting Father.  The one who holds the world in His hands.

He is always in absolute control and has a purpose for your life. In moments where you simply do not understand, trust His word when it reminds us to trust in Him with all our heart. He will never lead you astray.
