Trust In The Lord

     Proverbs 3:5-6 says, 'Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and lean not on your own understanding. In all they ways acknowledge Him, and he shall direct your paths.'

     I found this verse to be extremely evident in my life the past month. To elaborate, I have been studying for this HUGE exam. And it just seemed to be so overwhelming to me, and I was getting so stressed and so worried the closer it came to the test. I seriously found a white hair, and that's hard for me to do since my hair is jet black. Needless to say every time I did my devotions or heard a sermon, it always came up about how we need to cast all our cares upon the Lord for He cares for us. I know now the Holy Spirit was trying to tell me something, I just think that we get to scared or stubborn to listen. I think we all "know" what God can do for us, but never allow Him the chance to work in our live because we always want to do things our own way, and be independent. Once I finally prayed, "Lord, I can't do this in my own strength, it is only by Your power and might I can accomplish anything at all. I give my burdens and cares to You..." 
      It felt like I was in an ocean that was tossing me about taking me farther away from shore, but after I cried out to God, it was like the crashing waves turned into tides of peace and reassurance overwhelming me with His grace and love. There are hardly any words to explain the peace and comfort you feel. I felt like a encased butterfly in my cocoon...warm, engulfed in love. That truly is a wonderful feeling, it showed me how I'm never alone. My God will always be near my side to comfort me.
     To close, I did end up passing my test. Praise God! I'm so extremely thankful. God does answer prayer and give us peace and comfort when we ask and even when we don't think we need it. He is there for us always. :)
