Proverbs 3:5-6

This is probably the most quoted verse regarding trust. I’ve known it for years. And for years I’ve trusted him with all my heart. I’ve acknowledged his ways. I’ve done my best to follow the paths he determines for me. But I have always struggled (probably will always struggle) with “lean not on your own understanding.” Is it too much to ask, “Why?” or “How?” or “When?” Yes. Yes, it is too much. Because I cannot understand his ways (Isaiah 55:8-9). And, thank God, I need not understand him in order to trust him.
