“Trust in the Lord with all your heart,

on your own intelligence do not rely; 

In all your ways be mindful of him,

and he will make straight your paths.”

– Proverbs 3:5-6

Too often we believe we have all the answers to every question. We believe we are making it on our own, with no help from others. The truth is that God is always right there beside us, not like a puppet master, but as our loving creator. God has hope that we will recognize his guidance, listen to him, and follow the life he has given us by living with a purpose beyond this life. God is not another being just like us. God created us to love him, others, self, and all of creation. We must trust that God, the creator of the universe, knows more than us and wants to give us all that we need to love fully. In order to do this we must open our minds, hearts, and souls to the presence of God’s amazing grace in our daily lives. Today, start to seek God’s guidance “and he will make straight your paths.”
