Proverbs 3:5-6

"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

This verse is a great (and painful!) reminder that we in and of ourselves just can't do it. No matter how hard we try, we just can't be good enough. But if we put our trust in the Lord, He will direct our steps and our lives. I think that putting our trust in Him also means surrendering our all to Him. Now for me, this isn't always easy :) This means surrendering to Him my life! If you ask me, this seems kind of tough. If you think about it though, it isn't really our life anyways. God is the one who gave it to us and He already owns it! He is just waiting for us to surrender it to Him so that He can work in and through us.
