Today, let’s dive into Proverbs 3:5-6. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.” Isn’t this verse full of hope and love?

We all go through days when things don’t make sense. We might feel lost or confused. But this verse tells us, don’t worry, don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Why? Because we have a friend, a guide, a mentor…and that’s God. He’s like a kind teacher who’s always ready to help us.

We can trust Him. We can open our hearts to Him, just like we share secrets with our close pals. It’s comforting to know that we don’t have to carry all our burdens alone. God is there to share those burdens and guide us. If we reach out to Him, He will take our shaky, twisted paths and make them straight and smooth.
