"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
I now better understand why God desired the Israelites in the Old Testament to write His truths on the doorposts of their houses... we were created to need visual reminders of who God is and what He is doing.
The above verse from Proverbs is on my coffee cup that I have been using while in grad school. My greatest struggle this week has not been grad school related at all but trying to figure out what is after graduate school. With each passing day of grad school the time draws closer to a whole bunch of unknowns.... and I don't do unknown real well!
Last night I went to bed praying for direction as to... do I go ahead and buy my airline tickets to Africa... then I get some info that throws a wrench in those plans. In this process of trying to figure out what's next... I have been doing a lot of leaning on my own understanding... trying to figure it out in my own strength... and you know what... it is exhausting.
I woke up tired and fussy this morning with my mind whirling over all the unknowns and realized I seriously need to spend some time seeking His face and remembering what He has done in the past for me. I would love to be able to say... I have answers as to what I am doing... but I don't. However I do have a peace that only comes from Him. Trusting that He will work out all the detaills.
If you think about it... I would appreciate prayers that the Lord would reveal his direction to me!
