On Particularly Rough Days when I’m sure I Can’t Possibly Endure, I Like to Remind Myself that My Track Record for Getting Through Bad Days so far is 100% . . and that’s Pretty Good.”
You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.
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.
My mother has a wise saying: “If you don’t lie, you never have to remember what it was that you said. If you have to recount a story or experience, it’ll simply be the truth over and over.”
It’s a simple concept, but more often than not, one we struggle to adhere to. Take the next opportunity you have to stretch the truth, and resist that temptation. Shoot straight. Enjoy the freedom and peace of mind that results. (thedailyverse.com)
A faithful witness does not lie, but a false witness breathes out lies. Proverbs 14:5
“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” (Proverbs 3:5-6).
Ever been Pulled In More Than One Direction
It would be a dream come true if every time we went to make a decision a hand from heaven came down to point us in the right direction. God does help lead the way but when it comes to decision making He guides us through His word.
We can write out the pros and cons. We can try to weigh out every option in our minds. We can talk about our situation to death. However we all have to come to a time of trusting and believing in God to lead us in the right decision. When we put all our trust in Him, He gives us the direction we need to move in. His faithfulness will come through for us as we press forward in faith in spite of the odds stacked against us.
