I watched him sleep, so peacefully and deeply…until we hit a bump and then his head bobbled and he would jerk awake, momentarily.
Thanks for joining us for Wednesday’s Word with Kim-Evinda and Trench Classes United
I was envious of my ten-year-old grandson’s ability to rest like that, and equally envious of his response to the bumps in the road; to jerk a bit but then go right back to resting. It made me think of the Biblical principle and promise, Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your path straight. Prov 3: 5-6
What would it be like if I actually rested in Jesus like that, to lean my head – with its myriad of thoughts and struggles – body and soul into Him who cares for me, without even thinking twice, or trying to take any sort of control. And when the bumps in the road of life happen, sure they can cause me a knee-jerk reaction, but what if I went right back to resting in Him, leaning not on my own understanding.
What if I were to lean into Him instead of on my own understanding?
I am currently experiencing another bump in the road – who am I kidding; it’s like a freaking earthquake – and am desperate to learn this principle of leaning NOT on my own understanding, but trust has to come first. If I say that I trust Him, then practicing this should get easier, right?
Are you experiencing a crooked path, a bump in your journey? Do you trust Him enough to lean into Him? When we do this, we can’t fall and He will not let us down!
