A Proverbs Wednesday

My youngest came home from Awana's with her bible all tabbed and I was jealous! It's all color tabbed with red being the Pentateuch...5 books. (of course, those are the first 5 books). Orange is history...the history of God's chosen people. Yellow is poetry and wisdom. I have recently delved into this section and have found it UNBELIEVABLY comforting. Green are prophets. Purple are the gospels. Blue are letters.

This past Sunday, while reading one of the suggested verses, I was again taken aback, as if it was speaking directly to me in Proverbs 16:9 "In his heart a mans plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps"

I'm finding the Lord is beating me upon the head with a path He has chosen, and I am resisting. Like my youngest when she throws a tantrum (but much less physical), I am finding my life would be SO much easier if I would just obey(thank Andrea, for helping me see the light).

If only I could subscribe a bit more fully to the Star Trek adage..."resistance is futile", my life would be filled with much less angst.
