Leaning on the Staff

Thank you so much for continuing to pray for me!  Last night I lay in bed and wondered why I am doing so well.  Why am I not overcome with more emotions?  Why am I not questioning the Lord more?  I have accepted that this is the Lord’s path for me and I am continuing to trust in Him.  This morning I received my answer when doing my devotions.

Proverbs 3:5-6

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.

I will start at the present moment accepting things just as they are and trusting and knowing God is sovereign over everything and  in every area of my life.  Trust is the staff on which I lean as I journey uphill with Jesus.  If I trust consistently, the staff will bear as much weight as needed, trusting and being confident in Jesus with all my heart and soul.   (These thoughts are condensed from reading “Jesus Calling” by Sarah Young.)
