Hello friends. I’m not having one of my better days. Ive been feeling really tired and weak and pretty sore for the last few weeks. Ive noticed some things lately that are pretty concerning, and the nurse in me has diagnosed myself with something that’s pretty awful– Which in turn has got my anxiety turned up to full blast. Sometimes, too much knowledge is not a good thing. Just trying to stay positive and not worry too much until I see the doctor next week.
I was talking to my sisters about my concerns this morning and one of them reminded me about Proverbs 3:5. In honor of her, I’m going to leave you with the entire passage of Proverbs 3:1-6 from Eugene Peterson’s paraphrased version of the Bible, The Message.
Good friend, don’t forget all I’ve taught you; take to heart my commands.They’ll help you live a long, long time, a long life lived full and well. Don’t lose your grip on Love and Loyalty. Tie them around your neck; carve their initials on your heart. Earn a reputation for living well in God’s eyes and the eyes of the people. Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track. Don’t assume that you know it all.
I needed to remember that today. Maybe you did too.
