Hand Me the Keys

Don’t fret when it seems as if things aren’t going to plan; for even if you have an idea where I AM leading you in your life, you don’t know all the paths it will take to get you there.

Leave the driving to Me.

I value your input in prayer and conversations as we plan together.

If you could see your life from My perspective…

you would gladly hand me the keys.

For it gets complicated–working all things out for your good.

But I delight to do just that–

for you are a delight to Me!

“Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary, his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.” Is. 40:28-31

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. In allĀ  your ways acknowledge him and he will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones.” Prov. 3:5-8

“But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, which shines brighter and brighter until full day.” Prov. 4:18

“For a man’s ways are before the eyes of the Lord, and he watches all his paths.” Prov. 5:21

“The Lord will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life. The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and for evermore.” Ps. 121:7-8
