Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of April 15, 2018

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6 (NKJV)

Do you find it difficult to trust others because of past betrayal, rejection or abandonment? You may remember a time as a child when your Dad encouraged you to leap and to trust that he would catch you; or being blindfolded to trust someone else to lead you in the hope that they would not let you stumble or fall. When others have failed us and we can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel we don’t have to struggle and strive to figure it all out when we don’t know what to do. When there is no light of understanding before us we are exhorted to put ALL our trust in the Lord; in His loving, compassionate, goodness and grace. Our Father God is always there to heal our hearts, to catch us and to guide us when our hopes have crumbled and we can’t see the way ahead. We can trust the Lord to direct our paths for His love never fails. Amen!
