What Gets Me In Trouble

You know what gets me in trouble in my relationship with God?

It’s when I don’t have understanding, clarity about something, and it drives me crazy. I can feel like I’m paralyzed. I can be anxious and fearful, and I can make myself feel physically sick. I just want understanding…

….and yet, that’s not really the goal, is it?

In fact, it says in Proverbs 3:5-6, "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.” (emphasis mine)

So my trust in the Lord, is it based on my understanding? My peace of mind and heart should not be based on my understanding. This is why I’ve got to read my Bible. You know, it really makes a difference in how you think and experience your life and everything else. It just cuts right through. No other book like it!
