Trust in the Lord

 Proverbs 3: 7-10 states 'Don't be impressed with your own wisdom.  Instead, fear the Lord and turn your back on evil.  Then you will gain renewed health and vitality. Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the best part of everything your land produces.  Then he will fill your barns with grain and your vats will overflow with the finest wine."

It seems finally I can hear God talking to me through so many ways.  And He is saying the same thing through all of those.  "TRUST ME, I KNOW WHAT  I AM DOING"

Trust is such a easy concept, yet it is so hard to do for this "type A, domineering, in-control" woman.  In most things in my adult life, I have been the director and driver. Either directing the situation and telling everyone and everything what to do or doing it myself, because only I could do it the best way.

Now God is asking me to step back and let Him lead; let Him be the director and driver. How do I do this?  How do I just suddenly let go and let God?  In my head, I know He ALWAYS knows the right plan, but I still struggle with letting Him have complete control over my life. I guess that is why I am in the situation that I am in right now.  Now I must depend on Him to open the right doors and hang a big sign on it that says "This is the one, walk through, I'm here!

God, I pray that I will not miss the signs.  I have gotten the message that I must trust you COMPLETELY!  I do!  I know that only you can bring about change in my heart.  Change my heart.  Make me more like Jesus.  Let others see the transformation in my life that will point them to YOU. Guide my steps, put people in my path that need to see you through me.  Put people in my path that will help me stay on your path for my life.
I love you and am excited and scared about this new journey that I will be on. Calm my fears and give me the assurances along the way.
