thoughts: proverbs 3:5

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.”

Was there ever a time when a verse was glued to your heart? This whole week, Proverbs 3:5 was that verse for me. Whenever I felt overwhelmed about school and other worries, my thoughts immediately centered on the first part of the verse: “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart”. God wants us to know that we can trust in Him. In addition, God wants us to know that He is our Friend. Friendships, relationships, and marriages are all built upon a key component- trust. Without trust, what good would any kind of relationship be? This verse not only comforted me, but also inspired me to be a better friend. God loves and cares for us despite the fact that we betray Him everyday by sinning. Even though we do wrong, God still wants us to trust in Him and tell Him our needs. Isn’t it wonderful and reassuring to know that Jesus is there whenever we need Him? He definitely is the best Friend that one can ever have. As Christians, we must look to Jesus as our example of a friend. Even if our friends do us wrong, we should love and treat them kindly as Jesus has done for us.

Has there ever been a time when a verse spoke to you? If so, I’d love to hear about it!

  • Great post! I love Psalm 30:5-"for His anger is for but a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime, weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning". It's a great reminder that struggles end. πŸ™‚

    • Thanks for sharing Grace! I'm definitely going to highlight Psalm 30:5 in my Bible. πŸ™‚

  • There was this one quote in the Creation Story which I have heard year after year. But last year, during the Easter Vigil, I remember hearing: "And God said, β€œLet there be light,” and there was light." It struck me, and I thought, "Whoa, God actually created the world, and he did all of these beautiful and amazing things." πŸ™‚

    • Something similar happened to me as well! I was in a car, just glancing out of the window at the sky and trees and everything surrounding me. I was overwhelmed with amazement at how small I am in this vast and beautiful world that God has created. God is so good! Thanks for sharing, Morning! πŸ˜€

  • Oh gosh. This is just the reminder I needed today!

  • This is one of my favorite verses. I love the one right after too- 'In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths' (Proverbs 3:6). Together they remind me that God is totally in control, no matter what happens, and that even if I think that my life is not so good, he knows what he is doing and I should do his will.
