Proverbs 3:4 - 6 So you will find favor and good repute
         In the sight of God and man.  5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding.  6 In all your ways acknowledge Him,  And He will make your paths straight.



Not always easy to do as we are all human.  Each and every one of us.  It is human nature to try and control, try and make our own path.  Do it on our own. "I got this" NO I don't need your help.   Sometimes its hard to understand things that happen to us, with us or around us or to others we love..  But I will tell you,  it is a burden lifted when you can hand it over to God.  I have learned over the past couple of years or more that I am not in control.  I still struggle with that,  being the head strong Cantankerous( so I was told this week by a friend) person that I am.   Some love me for that, some have grown to hate me for it.  But I am who I am.. Gods beautiful creation with a plan and goals for my life to embrace him and let negative influences  fall away like sandstone.   The enemy wishes to destroy those that are closest to defiling his plan to ruin our direction and devotion.  AND he's tried VERY hard in my life.  WHICH being the "cantankerous" person I am,  pushes me even deeper into the path God is creating for my life.  I am not strong as some see me to be.  I am very thankful I have been able to help others with my perseverance and positive attitude(although have failed at this many times, again I am human).  I am actually very weak and vulnerable.  I suppose this is where the enemy comes in, using people to target my weakness's.  To destroy my faith and passions.  The ENEMY will NOT succeed.. 

Isaiah 30:15 -18 “In repentance and rest is your salvation,in quietness and trust is your strength,
but you would have none of it. 
THIS one made me giggle actually even thru tears  in repentance and rest "But you will have none of it"  16 You said, ‘No, we will flee on horses.’ Therefore you will flee! You said, ‘We will ride off on swift horses.’  Therefore your pursuers will be swift!  17 A thousand will flee at the threat of one; at the threat of five you will all flee away, till you are left like a flagstaff on a mountaintop, like a banner on a hill.”  18 Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you;  therefore he will rise up to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!

The one thing which even many religious people don't realize is, that when God helps, He helps through sources. Those sources might even be people we're unwilling to trust. And you have to be prepared for anything.
