May the words of my mouth and the thoughts of my heart be pleasing to you, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.
Last night at small group we had the leader of all the small groups show up to just oversee our group and to give us tips to make us all stronger in our faith. What I took away from the meeting was that verse. He talked about how his mom made him say it out loud before leaving the house everyday. He really didn’t understand it at the time, but looking back he realizes that he helped him make the right decisions during the high temptation situations.
Recently I came across Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will direct your paths.
I have decided that it will become my verse for 2005. I will memorize it and live my life according to it. I have a hard time letting go, I am bit of a control freak so it will be hard to “seek his will” but I am going to do my best to surrender to God’s will.
