And if you’re in America, happy Labor Day weekend! What are your plans?
I’ve had my eye on these gorgeous Letterpress blocks for ages, and these two sets are currently marked down from $45 to only $15 this weekend only!!
You can actually custom make any word you want using DaySpring’s Letterpress Block set! So fun, hey?
And look! The word, BRAVE is marked down to $15 this weekend, too!
Okay, enough gushing. It’s time to write!
This week’s Five Minute Friday prompt is:
This song by Lauren Daigle has been making my heart bleed every time I hear it on the radio:
The chorus goes like this:
When You don’t move the mountains I’m needing You to move
When You don’t part the waters I wish I could walk through
When You don’t give the answers as I cry out to You
I will trust, I will trust, I will trust in You!
And then of course I can’t listen to the lyrics without thinking about one of my favorite passages of Scripture, Proverbs 3:5-6 —
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 paths straight.
He will make your paths straight.
Did you hear that?
How often I lean on my own understanding before leaning on Him. How often I attempt to pour cement where it doesn’t belong instead of waiting for Him to clear the debris from my path.
Life is full of so many complications, so many choices, so many tough decisions. And yet these verses and the song above tell us all we need to know, don’t they?
Put your trust in Jesus Christ, and you need not worry which way to walk, or what may lie around the next bend. He’s got you covered.
If you’re in a season of transition, unknowns, or indecision, I hope this song and this passage will center you and help you to lean hard on the One who holds all things in the palm of His hand.
