Choosing Your Path

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight."  Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust and obey-these two words go together like coffee and cream.  Yet every day we face difficult situations that seem to defy simple solutions.  As women, myriad difficult choices face us-the right course of care for a sick child, moving from everything familiar for a new opportunity, following God's leading even when the outcome is hazy, even when the right choice frightens us.  You may toss and turn for nights without finding peace in your choice.  How do you determine the right choice?  Obey the guidance you find in God's Word, earnestly pray and seek trusted counsel, then trust God with the outcome.

Reflect & Pray: What hard choice is confronting you today?  What factors make your decision difficult?   How is God asking you to trust him in this situation?

Read Proverbs 3:1-35
