“Be careful at school. Always pray…” I reminded my son.
“Yes, mom. You, too,” he replied as he took the last piece of his scrambled egg.
“Proverbs 3:5?” I abruptly queried and made his memory juggled a bit.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding,” was his quick reply, along with a few gulps of cold milk.
“Remember that…Start your day with the Lord. End your day with the Lord,” I ended the conversation as we got up and placed the dishes on the sink, washed our hands and our hands meeting together as we bowed our heads to talk to the One Who already knew what would happen that day. Events that were uncertain most of the time to us.
And those two words I claimed silently as we both prayed while standing on His ground with confidence, knowing that everything Jesus said was true. He left so many proofs. He left His Word. He shared so much about the Kingdom. He gave so much love. None could fathom. But because of what He did to save humanity, I would always remind myself to trust first on Him and not with my own understanding. “Because His ways and thoughts are higher than ours…”
So, I will choose to always BELIEVE…and have FAITH….no matter what comes my way... At each passing seconds...Knowing that He does know. And He promised to never leave nor forsake those who loves Him. For each hour, we don’t need to see….True followers believe by faith… True followers see through their hearts...
