“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.”
One day, after I received a devastating piece of news concerning a loved one, my world came to a standstill and my mind went blank. After the shock subsided, thousands of thoughts ran through my mind at a hundred miles per hour. How could this be happening? What was I going to do?
That dreadful day after work, I drove to the beach and sat on the wave breaker trying to make sense of the situation. In my mind, I was questioning God, myself and the situation and I was desperately thinking of the various options I would take and the outcomes.
After a long while, I looked up into the night sky and in the quietness, Proverbs 3:5-6 came to my mind. It was a passage that I had memorised as a new believer. Those verses reminded me that I was to trust in Him. To quote it in one breath is so easy but it takes a lifetime to internalise and live out the essence of these verses. Indeed, He will keep us on track when we trust in Him wholeheartedly and listen for His voice in all that we do. - By IS
