Life can be frustrating at times. Some of the roads we CHOOSE to go down are not what we thought they might be. Sometimes we choose that road because we lean to our own understanding. Other times we just follow the crowd down that road.
When we place trust only in our own knowledge, we miss out on the special relationship we could be building with our Heavenly Father and our Savior, Jesus Christ.
Proverbs 3:5–6 reminds us to “trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” There are many things in life that can distract us from the stabilizing power that comes from trusting in our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. But if we will go back to the basics—prayer, daily scripture study, and attending our Church meetings—with trust in mind, our lives will feel balanced in ways that are impossible to achieve on our own.
Heavenly Father is pleased with us when we seek to discover truths. He loves teaching us line upon line, precept on precept. As we strive to learn and have faith in Him, He will bless us to see things as they really are.
Take time to watch today’s echo and trust in the one who knows which road we should take.
