RENEWAL Devotional: New Beginnings!
Written by Lydia D’Ross, Ordained Minister and Outreach Chaplain for RENEWAL at Brookhaven Hospital
At the end of every chapter in life, there is always a new beginning.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3: 6
The hardest struggle we have in life is being independent. We struggle so much in so many areas that we feel defeated or rarely have success in our endeavors. How we can overcome our own independent lifestyle and have great success, is by doing exactly what Proverbs 3:6 tells us do. It is great wisdom to live by.
We need to acknowledge God in our lives, and that we need Him daily to guide us into the future. We begin to realize that His thoughts for the plans we make will be important to us. We won’t need to struggle, and we will become totally at peace, because we trust Him with our plans.
God knows what is best for us. God does make our paths straight when we trust Him with our life and plans.
