This phrase, Psalms 25:1 in scripture, has become somewhat of a cliché. What would happen if we really did lay our troubles down every day? What if we said to the Lord daily, “Lord, I don’t know how to figure this out. I lift my soul up to you and place my trust in you. Bring people into my life who will guide me. Cause me to see what I need to see, do what I need to do and make decisions that are wise.” The Psalmist goes on to say, “No one whose hope is in you will ever be put to shame.” (Psalms 25:3)
