Proverbs 3:5-61 Corinthians 1:18-21    Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding...

I'm not a huge lover of Proverbs (yes, I know I'm in the minority), but I do love Proverbs 3:5-6. Talk about two powerful and foundational verses. So as I read them today, I broke them down phrase by phrase/thought by thought and did a little self-analysis. This was a good approach because it got me thinking about and considering my walk with the Lord and how I go about living my life.

I thought you might like to see what I did and work through some of it yourself. You might even think of other questions that you want to consider too. I hope you find this as meaningful as I did. When you get done, would you shoot me a comment or two about your experience? Thanks. Tami W.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart..." 
Consider: Does this describe me? Why or why not? What does trusting with all my heart really look like? 

"Do not lean on your own understanding"
Consider: How often do I stumble in this area? Why? How do I fix my tendency to look to me instead of God in my decisions? 

"In all your ways acknowledge Him" 
Consider: How do I acknowledge God, both publically and privately? How can I improve? 

"And He will make straight you paths." 
Consider: How has God and His Word kept me on course in the past?
