"Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6

I have started reading the new book by Shelia Walsh, "Beautiful Things Happen When a Woman Trust God" (I will post the book review on my blog soon!). I have really enjoyed it so far. When I first read the title I knew it would probably be a good book and wanted to check it out!

I grew up in a troubled home, very disconnected and emotional train wreck. Our family is still disconnected and in a lot of need of prayer and mending, but I have put that in God's hands and pray that things work out the way they should and on His timing.

From my growing up and experiences in my short lifetime, I quickly built up my own wall and defense that keeps me from trusting people. I have very few people even in my life right now whom I trust. But thankfully my trust in people is very different from my trust in my heavenly father! In Him I put all my trust! He has proven Himself over and over and every time I put something in His Hands, He never ceases to amaze me!! Praise His Most Holy Name! I can always rest on Him and know that He is leading me and will direct me in the right path!

A lot of things seem so uncertain and scary about the future. I see and hear of so much going on, that might go on, what ifs and might be, but all along I have had a deep peace and complete trust that no matter what, God will take care of His own! He always has and He always will. He is faithful. I trust Him.

I wanted to share the song, "Trust in the Lord" by Jaci Velasquez today, but could not find a youtube of it. But while I was looking I found this beautiful version by Sixpence None The Richer. I hope you enjoy it.

God bless!

  1. Proverbs 3:5-6 is such an encouraging scripture. There have been many times that I have claimed and held onto this truth. Have a great week!

  2. The video is beautiful. Such important words. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and your faith with us.
    Blessings for a good week ahead.

  3. Thanks for the video. Proverbs 3:5,6 is my life verse that I also share with my child 24/7. When we completely trust in Him, to me, that is learning to truly surrender everything. God bless.

  4. Sounds like my family. Thanks for sharing this, and for the song. Yes, it is a great blessing to be able to give our trust fully to One who is fully trustworthy. Indeed, 'tis so sweet to trust in Jesus.
